I harvested as much as I could manage of OAI metadata (using OAI-PMH, there were some gaps, last November), and republished it as Linked Data (with SPARQL endpoint) at http://oai.rkbexplorer.com/ .
E.g. http://oai.rkbexplorer.com/id/eprints.aston.ac.uk/person-27de9959dd8fe48b5e154f61ef6541ae-8d6ca3a18076768bde32679de0a6644f
You can also find linkage to other URIs in the associated CRS store.
E.g. http://oai.rkbexplorer.com/crs/export/?uri=http://oai.rkbexplorer.com/id/eprints.aston.ac.uk/person-27de9959dd8fe48b5e154f61ef6541ae-8d6ca3a18076768bde32679de0a6644f
And of course the more global linkage at
The oai identifier is often asserted as a string for dc:identifier, so you can search for them using SPARQL or the search facility:
