         Subject: Open Archives Services

The first of a remarkable new set of Open Archive Services that will be
provided on top of the Open Archives themselves has just been
registered: http://arc.cs.odu.edu/

This search engine, ARC, will give you a taste of what it will be like
to be able to search the entire refereed research literature, archived
across a set of interoperable Eprint Archives distributed around the
world spanning all disciplines.

So far, the most heavily archived disciplines are Physics, Mathematics,
and Computer Science, with the Cognitive Sciences (Psychology,
Neuroscience, Behavioral Biology, Linguistics, Neuroscience) still only
on the lightweight end, but with the forthcoming operational release of
the eprints.org self-archiving software, the share of all disciplines
and papers should begin to grow substantially: http://www.eprints.org

Try the ARC searcher, and imagine what it would be like if YOUR papers
were already in one of those archives, and could be found and read by
everyone, everywhere, for free, and forever.

(And then get your institution to install the [free]
eprint-archive-creating software -- and then go ahead and self-archive
all your papers....)

 Subject: [OAI] a service provider

 hi,

The first Santa Fe compliant service provider has been registered at
http://www.openarchives.org/sfc/sfc_services.htm .

It is a cross e-print search engine created at Old Dominion University.
Some may recognize the interface [http://arc.cs.odu.edu/] since it is
very similar to the one used in the UPS prototype.  Behind the scenes,
however, things have changed quite fundamentally.

 Congratulations.
