BASE:World’s most voluminous search engines especially for academic web resources
We are indexing the metadata of all kinds of academically relevant resources – journals, institutional repositories, digital collections etc. – which provide an OAI interface and use OAI-PMH for providing their contents .
The index is continuously enhanced by integrating further sources. We are working on several new features like a claiming service for authors within the ORCID DE project.
BASE is a registered OAI service provider. Database managers can integrate the BASE index into their local infrastructure
Further on there are several tools and services for users, database and repository managers.
