As you may or may not be aware, OAIster has partnered with Yahoo! to 
provide its metadata from Yahoo! Search. Most of the records we harvest 
for OAIster are now included in Yahoo! Search. You can try this out by 
going to http://www.yahoo.com/ and typing a query in the search box at 
the top of the page.

Currently, we're harvesting over 3 million records from over 260 
repositories. Naturally, we're pleased to be able to more widely 
disseminate these records. See our official press release at 
http://www.umich.edu/news/index.html?Releases/2004/Mar04/r031004 .
