Abstract

This paper introduces OAI static repository technology as a method by which publishers can expose their article-level metadata and thereby participate more fully in the wider information environment. It begins by discussing the value of exposing metadata via OAI and the potential role that static repositories might play in lowering the barriers to achieving this, and reports on the progress of a study which is evaluating the applicability and effectiveness of the static repositories approach.
