OAIster Search Interface Updated.
A new, simpler search interface has been provided for users who want to try
out the University of Michigan's OAIster retrieval service. OAIster is a
proposed information retrieval service of the University of Michigan
library for information about publicly available digital library resources
provided by the research library community.
It is being built using a suite of Open Archives Initiative (OAI)-based
metadata harvesting services developed by the Library of the University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) to enable the discovery and retrieval
of scholarly works, hidden on the Web (in databases, finding aids, and XML
documents) beyond the reach of search engines. For more on the UIUC
metadata harvester, see http://oai.grainger.uiuc.edu/index.htm.
Give it a try.
