The NASA Technical Report Server (NTRS; http://ntrs.nasa.gov/) has been
reimplemented and now uses the OAI-PMH. The OAI-based version replaces the
former distributed-searching based NTRS.  NTRS is a public service that
provides access to "unclassified, unlimited" NASA-authored scientific and
technical information.  In addition, NTRS also harvests from a select
number of non-NASA OAI repositories.  In total, NTRS holds > 540k metadata

NTRS is also an OAI-PMH aggregator and re-exports its holdings.  The
baseURL for NTRS is http://ntrs.nasa.gov/.

The development of NTRS was sponsored by the NASA Scientific and Technical
Information Program Office.  For additional information, please contact me
or JoAnne Rocker (Joanne.Rocker@nasa.gov).
