The Dept. of Communication at the U. of Washington ICT4D archive

The Department of Communication at the University of Washington runs a grey literature archive for development researchers and practitioners on Information and Communication for Development (ICT4D) issues.

This is a database of grey literature about how information and communication technologies are being used to solve social problems in developing countries.

Grey literature includes project reports, academic research, working papers, pre-prints, committee proceedings, scientific and technical documentation, and feature news articles, that are not easily accessible through the usual bibliographic sources.

The database not only holds a very interesting listing of documents, but the documents themselves, being searchable by country and (yet inactive options) country group, organization, technology and funding.

Terrific resource! :)
