Dear All,

In September 2006, Ifremer launched Avano ( http://www.ifremer.fr/avano/ 
), an OAI harvester for marine and aquatic sciences. Today, Avano 
provides centralised access to over 100.000 references, the majority of 
which are freely accessed as full text documents. They were harvested 
from more than 150 Open Archives.

I tried in one document ( 
http://www.ifremer.fr/docelec/doc/2007/acte-3238.pdf ) to review the 
functioning principles of this thematic harvester. This document also 
assess the main difficulties met during this first year of management.

Did you have similars experiences and/or any comments about this paper?

Kind regards,
