BASE-The Search Engine

Librarians continue to be knowledge professionals. Would you like to communicate to the Principal Blogger of India Librarian directly? email to .- .- 1816gbgv

BASE is one of the world's most voluminous search engines especially for academic open access web resources. BASE is operated by Bielefeld University Library.

As the open access movement grows and prospers, more and more repository servers come into being which use the "Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting" (OAI-PMH) for providing their contents. BASE collects, normalises, and indexes these data. Our OAI-PHM-Blog communicates information related to harvesting and aggregating activities performed for BASE.

BASE is a registered OAI service provider and contributed to the European project "Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research" (DRIVER) which was successfully completed at the end of 2009.

In comparison to commercial search engines, BASE is charcterised by the following features:

Intellectually selected resources
Only document servers that comply with the specific requirements of academic quality and relevance are included
A data resources inventory provides transparency in the searches
Discloses web resources of the "Deep Web", which are ignored by commercial search engines or get lost in the vast quantity of hits.
The display of search results includes precise bibliographic data
Several options for sorting the result list
"Refine your search result" options (authors, subject headings, year, resources and language)


Earlier OAIster was the only search engine which made for OAI repository search now acquired by OCLC and amalgamated with worldcat


Lisa, Ivy Baker Priest and Radner add fuel to my today’s mysteries……. February 17, 2

Lisa, Ivy Baker Priest and Radner add fuel to my today's mysteries……. February 17, 2011 :  

I reshape my own meaning of what Priest, Radner and Lisa tell. The so called end could be a fantastic new beginning ….. … You could not realize …. Live up to your dream…. May be a new and gigantic ream may be in the making …. … if we are lost on the way to the dream …. We may come across a better one …. Go ahead, live this very moment.  Keep doing the best ….. not knowing what follows next. It is never too late for any thing …. This very moment is very ripe to start once again…….it is never never late for any thing. You have never wasted any time for any thing. All that was required for a out of the box beginning. Trust me.

  1. "The world is round, and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning." – Ivy Baker Priest
  2. "Some times on the way to your dream you get lost and find a better one.  It is ok to change our minds and it is never too late top start". – Lisa
  3. "……… Life is about knowing having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what is going to happen next." – Gilda Radner
  4. "I encourage those of you who have not discovered your passion might be to keep seeking and dig deeper until you find it. For those who have found and changed your mind,  I say …. It is never too late to be what you might have been. Take a deep breath and take the leap. …. Dream Big" ….. Lisa
