  1. National Library and Information Services Infrastructure for Scholarly Content by Information and Library Network [login and password available with Library].
  2. An open-access journal is freely available online and does not rely upon traditional subscription-based business models to generate income. Instead, new business models including an article processing fee, sponsorship, advertising or a combination of these are used.
  3. An institutional repository is a publicly accessible archive where the work published by authors affiliated with the university or institution is posted online. These may be pre-prints and/or the finished articles.
  4. A meta-search engine is a search engine that sends user requests to several other search engines and aggregates the results into a single list.
  5. Subject directories, unlike search engines, are created and maintained by human editors, not electronic spiders or robots. The editors review and select sites for inclusion in their directories on the basis of previously determined selection criteria. The resources they list are usually annotated.
  6. Library gateways are collections of databases and informational sites, arranged by subject, that have been assembled, reviewed and recommended by specialists, usually librarians.
  7. Subject-specific databases or vortals are databases devoted to a single subject, created by professors, researchers, experts, governmental agencies, business interests, and other subject specialists and/or individuals who have a deep interest in, and professional knowledge of, a particular field and have accumulated information about it.
  8. Open source software is software with source code that anyone can inspect, modify, and enhance.
