Policy Archive Stores Research From Philanthropic Foundations

Library Blog Buzz tries to keep you updated with the new government and non profit internet sources for research, because they are usually very precise, thorough and free of charge.

In the past, at the blog you have discovered government sites for vendors in New York, fuel economy, mobile info for THOMAS and USA.gov, drugs, forms and disability.

The last non profit source that caught my attention is Policy Archive, which has the ambition to collect and archive all the research done in institutions, libraries and databases on behalf of philanthropic organizations.

American philanthropic foundations spend over $1.5 billion a year on research. Spread out across the nation among diverse libraries, institutions, databases, and websites, this valuable research can be difficult or impossible to identify and obtain

Research on Policy Archive can be found by browsing different topics, or particular author, funder, or publisher and by using the advanced search form.

More than 250 institutions currently participate in the archive with more than 12,000 documents.
