  Open Access Digital Library








Open to every one Open Access

Open-access literature is digital literature that is available on the web, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. Committing to open access requires dispensing with the financial, technical and legal barriers that are designed to limit access to scientific research articles to paying customers. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.

Due to its multi-disciplinary nature and the number of publications, this survey cannot include all relevant literature; its aim is to include representative literature covering all pertinent aspects and disciplines. Geographic coverage includes Africa, Asia, and South America. Languages concentrate on the five official IFLA languages: English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish. The literature search focuses on the fields of library and information science, and the subject disciplines of computer science, physics, chemistry, mathematics, astronomy, and geology

The UNESCO catalog lists over 100,000 UNESCO documents and provides access to the full text of many of these.
