Relevant links for the latest on free resources and other related issues
Prolific author Charles W. Bailey, Assistant Dean for Digital Library Planning and Development at the University of Houston, provides his Open Access Webliography. The site offers content that will give readers an excellent background on Open Access as well as many links to free resources (some covered in my book, some new). Bailey is on top of the OA movement; give it a look.
