Here in Canada we have been running a centralized search service for
Canadian IRs at http://carl-abrc-oai.lib.sfu.ca/ . It is using the PKP
Metadata OAI Harvester software (http://pkp.sfu.ca/harvester). We have 
not yet moved to the latest version of this software, which is much 
better than the original.

Consistency of metadata is a real issue with searching using metadata 
harvested via OAI. In order to address this issue, we are in the process 
of developing an application profile for contributed metadata, based in 
part on the UK ePrints profile. A presentation on this activity, from a 
year ago, is available at 
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/obj/014005/f2/014005-05209-j1-e.pdf 
(article based on this work is forthcoming in Library Hi Tech). We are 
on track to release the first public draft of the AP at a conference 
(http://www.carl-abrc.ca/projects/institutional_repositories/access_preconf_registration2006-e.html) 
in October.
