Dear all,

I'm pleased to announce a new BASE service called "BASE OAI-PMH 
Validity Checker", please see:


We use it as an internal tool to easily check the OAI interface 
of new repositories, but we think it could be helpful for 
repository managers too.

About BASE:

BASE is the name of the multi-disciplinary search engine for 
academically  relevant OAI-Sources which was created and 
developed by Bielefeld University  Library.  BASE is one of the 
biggest OAI-Search-Engines and includes more than 28 million 
documents originating from more than 1,830 repository servers.
