What is grey literature?
"All types of literature not available through the normal bookselling channels, including reports, trade literature, translations and ad hoc publications." (Auger, 1994:8)
In other words grey literature can be seen as information resources that are not always easily available. Grey literature includes (but is not limited to) brochures, pamphlets, company reports, memoranda, market research reports, etc.
Where can I find it?
Most Libraries will have a collection of grey literature in stock. Ask your Librarian for more information on what is available in your Library.
Most companies will have a certain amount of grey literature available, e.g. a bank with all its pamphlets and brochures.
