And as a librarian at an academic institution, Helen's definition of
grey literature is how we understand and teach it. I've not come across
an article not being peer-reviewed as being grey lit. - it's just not
peer-reviewed and not of any use for ERA or HERDC points.

It's the next wild frontier - how to search for grey literature. Some
disciplines do it well - ie: physics, while (many) others don't.

As a library student I was taught Helen's definition of grey literature.
The other may be more common as an academic definition.

Can anyone shed any light on the difference between these two
definitions of "grey literature"? It seems Helen's definition below
(unpublished and unsearchable) is the most common, but Chris's (not
peer-reviewed) seems fairly common on the net too.
