Dear Colleagues

We have an eprint.org repository already established for documents, but are 
interested to see whether it is possible to use the software for metadata 
records only. or Dspace for this purpose. It appears to be essential for 
both eprints.org and dspace to actually load "documents" - it won't 
work  for records only. Is this the case, or is to "operator error" here, 
does anyone know? We would like to create an OAI compliant catalogue 
containing metadata records for objects, but not load the objects 
themselves. Any advice gratefully received.
