Abstract

The present study on the use of both external and internal grey literature by CSIR researchers shows that technical reports are most used followed by doctoral theses. It was found that engineering and physical sciences laboratories use more internal grey literature than chemical and biological sciences laboratories. These and other findings help is framing content development policy for technical grey literature, framing policies for internal grey literature archiving, designing digital repository framework to archive internally generated grey literature and improve access and devise ways to enhance their visibility and use.
