This document presents the best practices as they existed on the wiki as of April Issue Date: Publisher: Washington, D.C.: Digital Library Federation: Citation Info: Shreeves, Sarah L., Jenn Riley, and Kat Hagedorn (eds). Best Practices for OAI Data Provider Implementations and Shareable Metadata. Abstract. In summer , the Digital Library Federation (DLF) sponsored a meeting at the California Digital Library. DLF and the National Science Digital Library (NSDL)-affiliated data and service providers as well as other interested individuals discussed issues about OAI PMH implementations and concerns stemming from the harvesting of metadata from diverse collections. since and is leading the effort to establish best practices for OAI data provider implementations and for shareable metadata. Sarah was the past chair of a Digital Library Federation working group that is establishing guidelines on the use of the Metadata Object Description Standard (MODS) within interoperability protocols like OAI. This implementation completely complies to OAI-PMH , including the support of on-the-fly output compression which may significantly reduce the amount of data being transfered. PHP OAI-PMH Harvester library: Casey McLaughlin: This library provides an interface to harvest OAI-PMH metadata from any OAI compliant endpoint.

In brief, [OAI-PMH] provides a set of services that enables exposure and harvesting of repository metadata. The protocol is comprised of six verbs that specify the service being invoked, they are. Identify - used to retrieve information about the repository.; ListIdentifiers - used to retrieve record headers from the repository.; ListRecords - used to harvest full records from the repository. The records OAI-PMH data providers expose are structured created the DLF/Aquifer Implementation Guidelines for Shareable MODS Records [13]. These ingest or recommend changes to data provider metadata creation practices before metadata is exposed for harvest. The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) is a low-barrier mechanism for repository interoperability. Data Providers are repositories that expose structured metadata via e Providers then make OAI-PMH service requests to harvest that metadata. OAI-PMH is a set of six verbs or services that are invoked within HTTP. –Data providers: ―A data provider maintains one or more repositories (web servers) that support the OAI-PMH as a means of exposing metadata.‖ –Service providers: ―A service provider issues OAI-PMH requests to data providers and uses the metadata as a basis for building value-added services.‖.

PMH and Linked Data. 2. WHAT IS OAI-PMH? Client applications can use the OAI-PMH protocol to har-vest metadata from Data Providers using open standards such as URI, HTTP, and XML. Institutions taking the role of data providers can easily expose their metadata via OAI-PMH by implementing light-weight wrapper components on top of their existing. Implementation of an OAI-PMH Data Provider using C# and This is an open-source implementation of a data provider using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting version software allows your repository metadata to be harvested by other interested parties using OAI-PMH. support the OAI-PMH as a means of exposing metadata. –respond to OAI-PMH queries over HTTP, and deliver metadata in XML format –OAI-PMH compliance •Service Provider –issues OAI-PMH requests over HTTP to data providers and uses the metadata as a basis for building value-added services (e.g. central indexing and searching) •Users.
