Learning object repositories are infrastructures for storing learning resources. If they offer a critical mass of materials, they have the potential to facilitate teaching and learning by offering means to reuse and integrate existing materials. This paper discusses search interoperability efforts. By bridging the OKI Open Service Interface Definition (OSIDs) for repositories and Simple Query Interface (SQI), a CEN/ISSS standard for interconnecting search engines, two worlds of repositories are consolidated. The results of this work have already been implemented in two systems: ARIADNE and the LionShare Peer-to-Peer (P2P) environment
