Information about publicly available digital library resources provided by the research library community. All resources are freely available.
OAIster is a broad, generic, information retrieval resource for information about publicly available digital library resources provided by the research library community. The two primary criteria for inclusion in the University of Michigan service are that the information resources the metadata describe are: publicly accessible and have no access restrictions, and have a corresponding web-based digital representation (e.g., this would not include the metadata records for slides when the slides cannot be accessed through the web).
