Grey literature in academic library collections: the example of libraries at the University of Zagreb

Grey literature is probably one of the most important sources of information in academic libraries. Authors of this study wanted to find answers to the following questions: what is the status of grey literature in Croatia?, what are the attitudes of academic librarians toward grey literature? and what has been written about grey literature in Croatian library literature so far?
The goal of the study was to understand how academic libraries at the university of Zagreb deal with grey literature. We tried to discover whether librarians are familiar with the term grey literature, what types of grey literature libraries possess, how do libraries deal with such literature (acquisition, processing, preservation, use), availability of grey literature in libraries and the existence of institutional repositories with grey literature.
