OAIster Statistics

OAIster's growth over the past 7.5 years (June 2002 - September 2009) at the University of Michigan can be shown in a number of ways. The most obvious is the number of search hits of the original search interface, i.e., how many times the "search" button was clicked on the search page. (You can also access the Excel file of these statistics.)

In addition, we can show how the number of data contributor repositories and the number of records harvested from these repositories grew over time. (You can also access the Excel file of these statistics.)

The global nature of OAIster is shown in this world map. (We harvested repositories from those countries highlighted in blue.)
