OAF - Open Archives Forum

"The Open Archives Forum (OA-Forum) was funded as an accompanying measure within the Information Societies Technology (IST) Programme, a theme of the European Union's Fifth Framework Programme managed by the Information Society Directorate-General of the European Commission.

OA-Forum provided a Europe-based focus for dissemination of information about European activity related to open archives and the Open Archive Initiative (»OAI). It facilitated communication among IST projects, national initiatives and others interested in the open archive approach, building a community of interest. It provided stimulation for European involvement in the OAI and sought to ensure that validation of OAI specifications were co-ordinated within Europe, that the European perspective would be fully articulated within the OAI, and that European organisations are ready to exploit the benefits of the OAI approach."
