OAIster is a union catalog of digital resources.

In October 2009, OAIster transitioned to OCLC. OAIster metadata is available:

  • As a freely available, discretely searchable database at http://oaister.worldcat.org/.
  • Included within WorldCat.org, also freely available and searchable with other WorldCat items.
  • Through FirstSearch, as a separate database available to subscribers to the FirstSearch service.

OAIster will no longer be searchable at the University of Michigan Libraries. More information on OAIster at OCLC can be found at the OCLC site. Please contact them at oaister@oclc.org to be included in OAIster.
