DL-Harvest is a federated archive, an open aggregator service of DLIST. It
brings together full-text, scholarly materials in the Information Sciences
from many different OAI-PMH compliant repositories. DL-Harvest is using
PKP Harvester with software improvements for flow control, sets, and
advanced searching, that have been developed by DLIST Graduate Research
Assistant, Joseph Roback. Besides DLIST, the current list of 11 archives
harvested includes selective harvesting from ArXiV. DL-Harvest is
available at http://dlharvest.sir.arizona.edu.

DLIST, http://dlist.sir.arizona.edu/, is a service of the School of
Information Resources and Library Science and the Learning Technologies
Center, University of Arizona.  Seed monies for DLIST are from the
University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and the
Proposition 301 funded initiative of the Internet Technology Commerce and
Design Institute, now the Arizona Center for Information Science and
Technology. DLIST is running on EPrints2 archive-creating software, which
generates eprints archives that are compliant with the Open Archives
Protocol for Metadata Harvesting OAI v2.0.
