Cari colleghi,
comunichiamo che e' stata lanciata in linea e ad accesso aperto la 
collezione dei World Development Reports dal 1978 ad oggi.



Segue notizia ripresa dal blog Library Intelligencer che include alcune 
informazioni sul servizio.

A new online, open access, collection of all World Development Reports 
since 1978 was launched today by the World Bank. The Complete World 
Development Report Online, which allows users to easily access and 
search across these World Bank annual flagship publications, is free and 
open to the public and may be accessed at http://wdronline.worldbank.org

For over thirty years, the annual WDR has provided a window on 
development economics to a broad international readership. The report 
has served as one of the principal vehicles for encapsulating the World 
Bank’s knowledge of and policy recommendations on key global development 
trends. From agriculture and the environment to economic growth and 
international trade, the WDR has tracked theoretical and empirical 
findings as well as policies in the field of international development.

The robust search engine of The Complete World Development Report Online 
optimizes search both across and within all WDRs with the click of a 
button. In addition, the background papers upon which the most recent 
reports were drawn are also available.

A free optional individual user account allows users to take advantage 
of tools such as bookmarking and saving selected chapters or reports, 
saving searches, and taking notes. A custom eBook feature lets users 
select chapters from multiple reports for future reference, sharing with 
colleagues, or creating course packets. The custom eBooks may also be 
downloaded, printed, or easily shared through social networking sites. 
In addition, the site features quick links to World Bank open databases, 
RSS feeds, new content alerts, and COUNTER-compliant usage statistics 
for librarians.
