My first impression was great excitement.. but then some questions as I looked
further. I now feel... maybe, but I'll believe it when and if I see more...

Libraries have books. Lots of key stuff is in books. I don't think I see books
being up in this system.

arXiv.org does a lot of this kind of function, for some groups.
Will the arXiv.org stuff be in this system? Maybe. That would be 
interesting to see.
but arXiv.org is already there. (And is important...)

If the main focus is journal articles... what about all those nasty IP 
problems with
journals, and all those very sticky publishers with huge legal budgets?

I was tempted to make suggestions to them about how to upgrade content..
but... life is short...
