Bibliographic Class
OAIster - University of Michigan

OAIster currently provides access to over 11,000,000 records from over 300 contributors. OAIster is a union catalog of digital resources. We provide access to these digital resources by "harvesting" their descriptive metadata (records) using OAI-PMH (the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting).

OAIster can be searched by Title, Author/Creator, Subject, Language or Entire Record. Searches can also be limited by resource type (text, image, audio, video, dataset) and sorted by title, author, date and hit frequency. Results allow further limiting by data contributor (i.e., where the record was harvested from).

The Historic Pittsburgh Image Collections site provides access to over 9,900 visual images from thirty-four collections held by the Archives Service Center at the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Museum of Art, Chatham College Archives, and the Library & Archives at the Heinz History Center.

The wide range of photographs offer a compelling and comprehensive look at how Pittsburghers lived and worked in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Selected from dozens of photographic collections, the images visually record the cultural, educational, and social development of the greater Pittsburgh region, as well as its urban structures, regional landscapes, and multifarious transportation methods. The images portray Pittsburgh's diverse workforce, industries, public schools, ethnic communities, and civic renaissance of the mid-1940s and 1950s.
