Yes. Google and other search engines will pick up materials located in OpenBU. This exposure is a major benefit of open access. Each object (article, video file, etc.) is tagged with metadata (descriptive data) that, while not modifying the object itself, allows indexing systems such as Google Scholar to ensure wider visibility for your work.
