I recently came across this resource in the last few weeks while looking for OER for a faculty member teaching Global Supply Chain Management and International Trade Finance. I was very impressed with it because it has a really good searching capabilities.

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?
