The OAIster search interface has been updated.;page=simple

We fixed a number of bugs and made some improvements--see

OAIster now serves up 529,919 records that link to digital objects from
89 institutions, with harvesting of more records in the near future.

We were very pleased with the response to the launch of the search
interface at the end of June. We received some great comments and
questions from you all, which we have used to harvest more repositories
and modify our search interface. Keep 'em coming!

Our plans are for another major release sometime in the fall. We'll
keep adding records on a periodic basis, so keep checking in the meantime to find
out what we're harvesting.
