Scirus includes arXiv.org e-prints

Scirus.com, the web search engine for scientific information launched by
Elsevier Science last April, has now made 180.000 e-prints from arXiv.org
(formerly xxx.lanl.gov) available to its users. The e-prints of arXiv.org
were harvested using the Protocol for Metadata Harvesting of the Open
Archive Initiative. Scirus has just been voted Best Specialty Search Engine
in the prestigious Search Engine Awards 2001, and is planning to add
additional OAI sources to its index in the near future to broaden its
coverage further.
