Search Monitor

Open Archives continues to grow in terms of the number of records, mainly because volunteers at archive institutions and associations index more and more records. A query about a week will probably yield more results than the same search today.

This is where the search monitor can help you. If new results are available for the searches defined by you then you will be notified by e-mail.
