[Apologies for cross-posting.]
The University of Michigan Libraries Digital Library Production Service
is pleased to announce the launch of the OAIster search interface,
OAIster has harvested a large number of records from a variety of
institutions -- 274046 records from 55 institutions -- that have made
these records available using the OAI protocol (see
http://www.openarchives.org/). Each of these records leads to an actual
digital resource hosted at an institution.
You can learn more about a particular institution's collection we are
harvesting at http://oaister.umdl.umich.edu/viewcolls.html. We are also
committed to improving our service -- see our future plans and the
progress we are making at http://oaister.umdl.umich.edu/phase2.html.
We are very interested in gathering more records, OAI-enabled or
snapshots of records that aren't yet OAI-enabled, to include in our
service. The more records we serve, the more valuable this service
becomes for the end-user. Please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
to discuss this further.
