Grey Literature

Grey literature is the hard-to-find information that organizations such as professional associations, research institutes, think tanks, and government departments produce.  It's an important part of the evidence base in health services research, but can be hard to find.  Use the Finding Grey Literature page to find helpful strategies and tools.
