Arthur,

the .csv is on it's way and I would appreciate it to get some more URLs to 
repositories in Australia and New Zealand from you. At this occasion I should 
appeal to all repository managers that it is useful to register at OpenDOAR 
or Open Archives. As a OAI-Service-Provider we know a lot of repositories in  
Europe which are not registered and if you compare our list with the list 
from our colleagues from OAIster you will clearly see that they know some 
repositories in the US which we don't know and vice versa. 

To create country-specific searches is just a spin-off product for us, people 
who want this can have this from Google or - and that was my point: from us. 
Usually we don't think in national categories either ...

Dirk
