    OAI Service Providers

    I am greatly interested in identifying Any and All Major and Minor OAI
    Service Providers. I am aware of the Open Archives list of registered
    Service Providers

    [ http://www.openarchives.org/service/listproviders.html ]

    but realize that this is incomplete [Not that Any List Can Ever Be

    The Open Archives Initiative (OAI) [http://www.openarchives.org ] was
    conceived to develop and promote interoperability, with the aim of
    making it easy to disseminate and share content. Within the framework
    of the (OAI), participants are divided into two classes, 'data
    providers' and 'service providers':

    *Data Providers* support the OAI Protocol for Metadata Harvesting
    [ http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/openarchivesprotocol.html ]
    as a means of exposing metadata that describes their resources,


    *Service Providers* harvest metadata using the OAI-PMH as a basis for
    building value-added services.

    So far, I have identified the following OAI Service Providers:
