I am pleased to announce the availability of the revised version of my
PowerPoint presentation from the 
recently concluded WiLSWorld 2004 Conference [
http://www.wils.wisc.edu/events/wworld04/ ]

_Open Content and Access for Digital Scholarship_

"The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting
(OAI-PMH) provides an application-independent 
interoperability framework based on metadata harvesting. There are two
classes of participants in the OAI-PMH 
framework: Data Providers and Service Providers. Data Providers
administer systems that support the OAI-PMH 
as a means of exposing metadata from digital collections or
repositories; while Service Providers use metadata harvested 
via the OAI-PMH as a basis for building value-added services.  In this
presentation we will profile several major OAI-PMH Data 
and Service Providers, and describe and discuss their innovative
content, features, and functionalities."

The REVISED and CORRECTED presentation has been self-archived at:
