Dear all,

we are happy to announce, that BASE (www.base-search.net) has reached 
two more milestones with indexing more than 60,000,000 OAI-records 
provided now by more than 3.000 repositories worldwide.

In 2014 we have indexed about 250 new repositories until now, which 
indicates the ongoing importance of repositories as the backbone of the 
OA infrastructure. Also in this year, we are going to celebrate the 
tenth anniversary of BASE!
