Distributed object search and discovery across multiple repositories requires some interoperability standard. Search & Retrieve for Web/URL Service (SRW/U) is a powerful and flexible example for such a standard. We have implemented a SRW/U-compliant indexing and search service, which is part of the eSciDoc Infrastructure. It works with arbitrary metadata profiles and supports indexing of several file formats, including PDF and Microsoft Word. Even though the service is part of eSciDoc, it can be configured to work directly with Fedora. We will describe its architecture and demonstrate its adaptability. The software is available as open-source software.
