Below, you can see a list of the most interesting things that I’m working on right now.

webgraph-it-logoWebGraph-It.com analyses websites and creates web graphs. WebGraph-It can detect duplicate and near-duplicate webpages, as well as web spider traps.

archivereadyArchiveReady.com is an innovative online tool which determines if your website will be archived correctly by web archives (2012+).

new_openarchives_logo_homeOne of my most important projects is openarchives.gr, the first and most important search engine for Greek scientific and cultural content.

europeana-logo-2I developed the Hellenic Aggregator for Europeana . The system is sharing content from 20 Greek digital libraries with Europeana.


UltraCl@rity (ΥπερΔιαύγεια) is a search engine indexing the full text of all Greek Government public documents,  published online through the “Cl@rity” open gov data project (2011+).

I develop and operate oaipmh.com, a web application which enables validation and data extraction from OAI-PMH enabled digital libraries (2010+).
