ALS/MND digital library now OA

The International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations has decided to open up its digital library.  (Thanks to Graham Steel.)  From the library's front page:

We have now made the site 'Open Access'.  This means that anyone interested in information on ALS/MND can now have access to the considerable resources available through this site.  We would ask however that if you use any on the publications that you acknowledge the original source....

ALS/MND stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis / Motor Neurone Disease.

PS:  This is a most welcome decision that will benefit patients, families, physicians, and researchers.  Kudos to all who took part in the deliberations.
