     >across a set of interoperable Eprint Archives distributed around the

     >on the lightweight end, but with the forthcoming operational release of
     >the eprints.org self-archiving sofware, the share of all disciplines
     >and papers should begin to grow substantially: http://www.eprints.org
     >Try the ARC searcher, and imagine what it would be like if YOUR papers
     >were already in one of those archives, and could be found and read by
     >everyone, everywhere, for free, and forever.
     >(And then get your institution to install the [free]
