Looking for historical documents, streaming video, audio files, digitized books, or scholarly articles? This huge database provides access to almost 20 million records of freely available digital collections and resources from over 1,000 institutions. Most places want to show off the cool things they own like unpublished letters by Edgar Allen Poe, a photo of William Faulkner, or an article about the antimicrobial properties of sea hares published in the Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research. Check out OAIster the next time you have a research project. You might be pleasantly surprised. It is available on our Databases A-Z list.
