Today is the first day of Open Access Week (October 18-24, 2010). I am happy to announce, in collaboration with Phoebe Acheson of the University of Georgia Libraries and Becoming a Classics Librarian, the debut of a new blog: Ancient World Open Bibliographies. Please have a look and consider subscribing by RSS or email.
This new blog is for discussion and development of a project to collect and solicit annotated bibliographies about subjects relevant to studies of the ancient world. It is the first concrete step to come from a conversation Pheobe and I began after she posted Oxford Bibliographies Online: More Rant Than Review. In this blog we will collect existing open access bibliographies we find on the web, and discuss the goals, audience, format, and scope of the final project: a dedicated wiki site collecting bibliographies, which will be open access.
We welcome your participation in the conversation and your contributions to the collection of bibliographies.
