I don't think it is really an issue of traditional search engine 
optimization but rather that there often isn't a crawable site.  It 
seems like most repositories are search oriented and what pages are 
there don't have much in the way of text corpus to index.   If the pages 
and the text aren't there Google isn't going to index it.
