More on Google searches of institutional repositories

EContent has an unsigned story on the new Google project to index DSpace repositories, Google Teams up with Colleges to Test Searches of Scholarly Materials, April 13, 2004. Excerpt: "The project is intended to allow users to direct their searches to on-campus repositories of scholarly materials that contain copies of academic papers, technical reports, drafts of articles, and other work by a university's professors. Scholars can choose whether their works will be available to all Internet users or only to others on their own campuses. The participating universities have tagged all the materials with metadata tags."
