Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the latest release of our search engine 
BASE (Release 3, 1 March 2006), that is now successfully running on a
server cluster. URL:

BASE searches over 2.7 million documents from 189 sources. Among them 
are numerous academic full text archives that are accessible through 
the international protocol of the Open Archive Initiative (OAI). Most 
of the documents are freely accessible and can be searched on the 
basis of metadata or full text.

As a new feature we have integrated hit-related links to the academic
search engine Google Scholar. An example: searching for "e-science
infrastructure" produces 36 hits:
Choose hit number 1 ("The Semantic Grid: A future e-Science
infrastructure") and click on the link "Check this title in Google
Scholar". The Google Scholar hit list is shown and you can now use 
all functionalities provided by Google Scholar, e.g. + view the 
articles citing the document ("Cited by 122") or + view different 
versions of the article ("group of 26"). 

Partly, this search will produce no hits, as BASE indexes some of the
sources more completely than Google Scholar does, moreover, some of 
the sources indexed by BASE are not available in Google Scholar. If 
your library participates in Google Scholar's "Library-Links"- 
programme, there may be shown a link to your library stocks. 

Other features offered by BASE are
+ different options to refine your search results and to sort your 
+ a search history function documenting your queries.

BASE is the multi-disciplinary search engine to scholarly internet 
resources at Bielefeld University, provided and developed by the 
Bielefeld University Library and based on technology by the Norwegian
company FAST Search & Transfer ( Learn more about
