IDEAS, one of the main RePEc services, is now hosted at the Economic 
Research Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. It is running 
on new and efficient hardware also sponsored by the St. Louis Fed, and for 
the first time has a contingency plan in place in case of disruptions. 
There is also local system administration support. Other services, such as 
EDIRC (a directory of Economics institutions) and the RePEc Input Service 
are moving as well. All of them were hosted for the last 8.5 years by the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences of the University of Connecticut.

The Federal Reserve bank of St. Louis is committed to providing a range of 
information services to the Economics profession and others interested in 
the economy. The flagship service is FRED, which disseminates over 20,000 
data series in various formats (including customizable graphs). Other 
services are ALFRED (vintage data), GeoFRED (geographic representation of 
data), CASSIDI (banking data), FRASER (digital library of historic US 
banking and economic publications) and Liber8 (an economic information 
portal for students and librarians).
