      Apologies. Freidok didn't have its OAI-PMH interface
      registered with
      ROAR's metadata harvesting service. I have discovered the
      necessary URL through Google and passed it on to the
      service maintainer.

If your institution has a repository, please register it in
(and don't forget to include the OAI-PMH Base URL!)

And if your institution has a (Green OA self-archiving) mandate
please register it in ROARMAP

That is the way we track the growth of OA repositories, the growth of
their contents, and the growth of deposit mandates (57 registered as
adopted to date, 11 more proposed).
