The Pirate University is a new on-line service for students and scholars who search for certain (academic) articles which are unavailable in their own institutes’ library. Users post well described notices of the academic material searched for, for example journal articles, publications. Other users, persons with (privileged) access to the material requested, reply by sharing the requested resource with a few mouse clicks. The service relies on the willingness of students with access to well-stocked libraries to regularly look up articles and share them with less privileged students from around the globe. Please forward this link announcement to other relevant academic networks.
