World Bank Launches Open Repository

Earlier this week, the World Bank announced that it is making more than 2,000 of its books, articles, reports, and research papers freely available to the public for use and distribution in a searchable Open Knowledge Repository.  This promises to be a wonderful resource for law students and faculty interested in transnational law, economic development, and human rights issues.  Browse through the diverse World Bank collections here, or search for "law" and law-related topics.  A fuller explanation of the repository, its new open access policy, and its expected impact, is presented in the World Bank's official announcement.
