Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE), an international public-private consortium coordinated by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Yale University, and leading science and technology publishers, enables developing countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of environmental science research.
The Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative (HINARI) provides free or very low cost online access to the major journals in biomedical and related social sciences to local, not-for-profit institutions in developing countries. Yale University Library is a full partner in the project.

The Yale University Library Diversity Council was formed in August 2005 to enhance the diversity and cultural competence of Library staff so that the workplace continues to evolve into an even more inclusive and congenial environment. This type of atmosphere is conducive to job satisfaction and will in turn lead to even more effective service to our diverse patrons.
The Diversity Council is taking a leading role in developing and implementing initiatives that promote diversity within our staff community.
