As far as I can tell UBC Library doesn't have this collection in our eresources or through Summon.  I'm looking to see if the collection can be turned on it the back of Summon, our search and discovery layer.  I'll let you know what I find.

Hi Everyone,

Amanda and I attended the Creative Commons Global Summit last week in Toronto. During this event, I had the opportunity to listen to a speaker from the World Bank talk about their open access policy and Open Knowledge Repository (https://openknowledge.worldbank.org/) which houses over 23,000 books, journal articles, working papers, and other resources on economic development around the world. I asked the speaker if she was aware of any post-secondary institutions using this collection; she didn't know.

Are any of you aware of or using these resources?
