This is the monthly message on the "happenings" from last month in RePEc.

First, NetEc, the precursor of RePEc, is now ten years old, old age in 
Internet time, yet more and more vibrant. 

NetEc was started by Thomas Krichel, who is still with us and the driving 
force behind the project, and Fethy Mili, who recently left his position 
as documentalist at the University of Montreal. For more on the history of 
NetEc, see http://netec.mcc.ac.uk/doc/NetEc.doc.html

Now to last month's achievements on RePEc:

over 110000 working papers
over 200 books
over 40000 items with JEL codes
over 40000 items linked in the profiles of registered authors.
