The Digital Library Research Group at Old Dominion University is pleased to
release Kepler Version 1.2 as open source software, and is available for
download at:


The objective of Kepler is to give any user the ability to easily
self-archive publications by means of an "archivelet": a self-contained,
self-installing software system that functions as an Open Archives
Initiative data provider. Kepler archivelets are designed to be easy to
install, use and maintain. Kepler is a perfect solution for those that need
to be OAI-PMH compliant, but do not have the resources for more complex
OAI-PMH software installations. Some features of Kepler include:

*Configurable community standards
*Tailored publication and search services
*Broad and fast dissemination
*Interoperable with other communities

This project is supported by NSF Award 205486 and is a joint effort of
various parts of the US Geological Survey (USGS), Old Dominion University
(ODU), Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and the Open Language Archives
Community (OLAC).
