The PLEIADI Project (acronym for "Portale per la Letteratura scientifica
Elettronica Italiana su Archivi aperti e Depositi Istituzionali", a portal
for Italian scholarly e-literature in open archives and institutional
originated from the collaboration between two major Italian university
consortia, CASPUR and CILEA. PLEIADI is a national platform that offers
centralized access to the scholarly literature archived in Italian
institutional repositories, harvested via the OAI-PMH protocol. Metadata
are then filtered through different services that add value by
crosswalking, normalizing and indexing. PLEIADI portal offers a joint
search interface and a series of user-centred services (news, forum, RSS,
alerting, resource linking, profiling, etc.) that supplement the platform
offer. The list of IRs is continuously growing.

Because of the importance to gather a critical mass of open access
contents, CASPUR e CILEA (via AEPIC,
support the promotion of interoperable archives through several initiatives
addressed to researchers, technicians, librarians in universities and
research centres. Both also offer the design and implementation of
archives, journals, portals and integrated systems for any need of
information aggregation.

PLEIADI will be presented by Paola Gargiulo at "ELPUB 2005, the 9th ICCC
International Conference on Electronic Publishing"
(<>, that will take place on
8th-10th June 2005 in the Arenberg Castle in Leuven-Heverlee (Belgium).
