There is an awkward mix of 'OAIster is' and 'OAIster was' in this article. The only way I can make sense of it is to assume it was a live project when run by the University but is now preserved unchanged and pickled by OCLC. Is that right?

Inaccessibble items on OAIsterEdit

Does anybody know why OAIster list hundreds of inaccessible items? Only about 10-20% per every keyword search is accessibble online - there is no way to get access to the rest. So I wonder why these itemes are listed in this database since they are neither free nor easy to access... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:41, 1 September 2012 (UTC)


This sentence is highly promotional, and lacks citations to support its claims:

OCLC is evolving OAIster to a model of self-service contribution for all open access digital repositories to ensure the long-term sustainability of this rich collection of open access materials.
