There are now a couple blogs on open access in anthropology that I wanted to point out:
Anthropology News also had a recent issue with articles covering open access in anthropology (can download pdfs).
Savage Mind’s Rex provides us some very useful guidelines on how to get the information we need about new articles and books through online alerting in his post, Total Information Awareness (for anthropologists). Especially useful for people not linked into mainstream academia or off doing fieldwork or just interested in staying up to date.
Rex also describes the Mana’o Project, an open access repository for anthropology, and actively encourages people to use it.
If you are interested in more from Savage Minds, they have a whole Open Access Open Source category. CKelty in particular has been posting on a regular basis recently in this area.
