“An online access project has given Yale Law School faculty broader readership than ever before.

The Law School Library added roughly 3,000 faculty-published scholarly articles from legal journals to an open access database on its website over the past year – giving it the largest online repository of its kind. The efforthas made Yale a leader among institutions seeking to increase the amount of academic content that is freely available to the public.

The database has generated more than 300,000 downloads from visitors worldwide in the last 12 months alone, and law librarians at Yale said they hope the University's progress will encourage other law schools to implementsimilaropen access initiatives.”
