Spotlight: OAIster


Every week, this blog will highlight a website that might be of interest.

This week, let’s look at OAIster. OAIster is a service that cross-searches over 1,000 open access repositories, providing free access to quality, academic research. Most of the repositories are based at universities. An open access repository is a digital library of the intellectual output of the institution in question, and can also be subject-based.  OAIster is fully-searchable, and freely available, with no need to login.

The University of Bolton’s Institutional Repository (UBIR) is indexed by OAIster. If you’re interested in finding out more about UBIR, visit the homepage at
