Experimental prototype observatory node

The Web observatory is an exciting concept but it is difficult for a newcomer to get their head around what it means. To help, researchers at Southampton University have prototyped a Registry of Open Access Repositories which might be thought of as an example local node of a larger observatory which tracks the publication of relevant data sets.
