EBSCO's free database: GreenFILE

Kudos to EBSCO for creating and sharing a free, fulltext database called GreenFILE.

Description, from the EBSCO Press Release:

GreenFILE indexes scholarly and general interest titles, as well as government documents and reports. This resource offers a unique perspective on the positive and negative ways humans affect the environment. Drawing on the connection between the environment and disciplines such as agriculture, education, law, health and technology, GreenFILE serves as an informative resource for anyone concerned about the issues facing our planet. The database contains nearly 300,000 records, full text for selected titles and searchable cited references for more than 200 titles as well.

What a beautiful illustration that there are Roles for the Aggregators in the process of Transitioning to Open Access.

Thanks, EBSCO!
