    Gray literature is a librarian's term for that which lies between the
    purely personal and commercial publication: reports of governmental and
    non-governmental organizations, unpublished research reports,
    environmental impact reports, and a very long etc.

    Since it never comes on the market there is no systematic way to acquire
    it despite the fact that some of it may be extremely interesting and
    useful for either policy or academic concerns.
