OpenDOAR, dSpace, Fedors and other repository news

Two related yet unrelated items today:
dSpace and Fedora have officially announced they will be partnering. This comes as good news for those of us who have long wanted to use Fedora for its open and expandable model, but have been using dSpace for its out-of-the-box ease. Now maybe we can have and eat our cake. We shall see…
Meanwhile, OpenDOAR, the Directory of Open Access Repositories, has spiffed up its search feature by mashing up with Google Maps. Search for repositories, select “Google Maps” instead of “Summaries” from the appropriate drop-down box and voyola: search results on a map. Cute.
