English abstract

Conclusions of the breakout session "OAI services". We identified several areas of focus for future development in OAI services. Chief among these was the idea of a "Value Added Aggregator" (VAA). The VAA would perform many of the services associated with the traditional Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) services. The VAA would be a supporting service to those who build SPs. The key point is that the VAA would re-expose the results of its (meta)data analysis. This would be an appropriate role for professional socities, national libraries, OCLC etc. We envision the creation of multiple, and in some sense competing, VAAs.
