Dear all,

the “La Pérouse” library has just released Avano
(http://www.ifremer.fr/avano/), an OAI harvester for the marine and aquatic
sciences. It offers an access to electronic resources about aquaculture and
fisheries for instance, but also marine biology, marine geosciences,...).

What’s original in this harvester is that we developed a system that allow
to detect notices about marine and aquatic resources loaded in
non-specialized marine repositories such as ArXiv or PubmedCentral. This
system is based on the detection of marine and aquatic terms such as
oceanography or phytoplankton for example. 

With this system, Avano is already able to offer an access to about 24 000
notices that comes from more than 30 repositories. And we will load more
repositories and more notices in the coming weeks.

We would be pleased if you could share your comments about this project.

Kind regards,
Fred Merceur
