Note, the Joint Library at the current location in HQ I is closed until end of March while they move collection off-site for renovations.They will page books from the off-site location for all requestors…including retiree requests.
Let’s take a look at the catalog so you can see what there is available.Go to catalog http://jolis.worldbankimflib.org/external.htmYou could search for items, see if they say they are available and come to the Library to borrow the item.Some items are freely available full-text pdfs.Some are eBooks or linked to licensed content for staff only (i.e. anyone with access to the Bank’s intranet, with unique computer login)
Open data is one of 3 integral parts of Open Development. The Bank collects a wealth of information on our client’s economies and on complex development topics, and in opening up about what we know-- sharing tools and essential information, we can work together to find solutions to development problems.
Every day when I walk into to work, I am reminded of our collective dream…Our dream is a world free of poverty. The goal of open data, as our newest president Dr. Kim expressed is not about data for data’s sake. The goal of opening data …is to improve the lives of people around the world through access to information.
Since launch in April 2010 to September 2012: 2.5 million downloads 76 million pages viewedSince 2010, the Bank has released 8,000 data indicators for 200 countries covering 50 years as part of a broad effort to increase access to information and encourage problem-solving. The Bank is now working with developing country governments that also want to open their data and increase transparency in public finances to drive confidence and shape decision-making among investors, businesses and households.“This is an increasingly important area today,” said Dr. Kim. The Bank recently supported the governments of Kenya and Moldova in their open data initiatives. “We can and will go further in supporting transparency in government and public service delivery.”http://blogs.worldbank.org/voices/world-bank-president-jim-yong-kim-opens-data-conference-in-washington
The site is available in English, French, Spanish, Chinese, and Arabic.By countryBy geographical regionBy income levelThere are notes available for how the Bank classifies regions (we differ in some cases from UN and IMF)The country pages provides key statistics and a quick glance into the economic condition of the countryThe page is populated by data from the WDI database – the primary source for our site. On this page you can search for an indicator by typing it into the find and indicator box and instantly get the figure.All of the underling data on this page can be downloaded in excel or xml format.Direct access to databank and data retrieval toolSearch for data for a specific topic18 topicsRecently added are gender and climate changeAccess to databankUsers are encouraged to use the data and share with third parties.You can use it freelyYou can re-use it freelyYou can redistribute it freelyWe ask for attributionFor commercial and non-commercial purposeshttp://go.worldbank.org/7W7H4BOZ40It’s data that’s technically openYou can search for it and find it easily onlineIt’s available in an editable electronic format or an API --- xls, json, txt, csv, xml, html, doc, API, odt, ods etc.

LOOK AT SITEToday, Data.worldbank.org offers an entry point for understanding the big picture of the state of development at the international and national level. This was a huge change! Before users subscribed and paid for our WDI database. It was over $100 per subscription and varied for larger institutions such as universities and companies.Used to provide 54 indicators from the WDI for public, but if users wanted more data they either had to pay for the subscription or send a request to our help desk and wait for us to send them the data. As you can imagine, this was an inconvenient process.Collaboration: There was demand for more data, more specialized data, more topical data so DECDG worked with other units across the Bank to include their data in the data catalog.
Many of you may have heard about the Haves and Have Nots in terms of access to the internet, this extends to countries who cannot afford access to many of the expensive scholarly and scientific journals that should be available for budding scholars in developing countries.

OPEN ACCESS Removes price barriers (subscriptions, licensing fees, pay-per- view fees) and permission barriers (most copyright and licensing restrictions) for scholarly content http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/ov erview.htm11
OPEN ACCESS Strategies to achieve goal of OA I. Self-Archiving I. Scholars deposit their refereed journal articles in open electronic archives following standards from the Open Archives Initiative http://www.openarchives.org/ II. Search engines treat the separate archives as one so users don’t need to know about where the content is residing.12
OPEN ACCESS II. Open-access Journals Journal articles should be disseminated as widely as possible OA journals will not invoke copyright to restrict access to and use of the material they publish Ensure permanent open access to all the articles they publish Remove barriers to access: OA journals will not charge subscription or access fees Cover expenses through foundations and governments funding research, universities and laboratories that employ researchers and endowments13
