Concordia Library and searching for OA.

Strolling through various journal articles I’ve tagged, I noticed Concordia Library has placed an “Open Access” resources link on its list of databases page. It links to the OAIster search engine.

After helping a teacher archive their work on the Mana’o Anthropology Archive, I thought I would test out how well self-archiving in a repository works for an anthropologist. Unfortunately OAIster cannot find the article hosted on Mana’o…

This is not to say Mana’o is doing something wrong, just that we obviously need to do a lot more to make this stuff accessible!
