I have added two new sources of free or open access books on Phi’s “Selected Health Information Resources for Africa” Netvibes site.
- The Directory of Open Access Books [DOAB] initiated by OAPEN Foundation currently holds 756 Academic peer-reviewed books from 22 publishers. There are a few on biomedicine. (Thanks to Dr Shamprasad M. Pujar, Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research, for alerting me to this.)
- Free publications on the important subject of Early Childhood Development are available from a recognised authority in this area – the Bernard van Leer Foundation.
