Open Folklore 2.0 Now Available

Friday, October 11, 2013   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Tim Lloyd
The Open Folklore partnership of the American Folklore Society (AFS) and the Indiana University Bloomington Library (IUBL) has just unveiled a major update to the look and operation of its web site openfolklore.org. The new design simplifies the visual appearance of the site, and a number of underlying changes improve the site's search functions as well as its presentation of background information about scholarly communications in the field of folklore studies. Our thanks go to the AFS members and IUBL staff members who provided comments as part of this process or who took part in the beta-test of the new site.

Since 2010, Open Folklore has operated as a) a website; b) a scholarly portal providing access to open-access books, journals, websites, and gray literature in our field; c) a branding effort or unifying label for a collection of projects and efforts being pursued by AFS and IUBL to make a greater range of scholarly resources in folklore studies openly available for those who need them; and d) a case study for productive and effective collaboration between an scholarly society and an academic library.
