New Database: OAIster

The library now has access to the OAIster catalog of digital resources.

OAIster provides access to these digital resources by "harvesting" their descriptive records using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting. (The Open Archives Initiative is not the same thing as the Open Access movement.) These resources, often hidden from search engine users behind web scripts, are known as the "deep web." The owners of these resources share them with the world using OAI-PMH. OAIster reveals these digital resources in an easy-to-use, searchable interface.

For off-campus access, please use research port, or login via VPN first (http://vpn.umbc.edu).
