Dear all:

We are pleased to announce the availability of the new open archives
initiative web site at http://www.openarchives.org.  This new site is
served from Cornell University - the former site was served from Los
Alamos National Labs Library.  We are grateful for the excellent support
by LANL library since the inception of the OAI.  Because of the
mechanics of DNS, it may take a couple of days for the name resolution
to propagate across the network.  Please be patient if you still are
resolved to the old site.

The new site incorporates a number of improvements:

- easier and more uniform navigaton across OAI information
- shortcuts from the home page to core documents and information
- opportunities for formation and links to OAI communities.  We invite
you to use the "submit a post to our web site" feature available from
the home page so that we can link to OAI related information from your

As always feedback is welcome to openarchives@openarchives.org.
