Using Oai Protocol for Metadata Harvesting Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Online scholarly publishing is revolutionizing scholarly communication, and the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) is among those protocols leading the way in the transformation process. OAI enables access to Web-accessible material by harvesting (or collecting) the metadata descriptions of the records in an archive so that services can be built using metadata from many archives. Through a series of case studies, Cole and Foulonneau guide the reader through the process of conceiving, implementing and maintaining an OAI-compliant repository. Its applicability to both institutional archives and discipline based aggregators are covered, with equal attention paid to the technical and organizational aspects of creating and maintaining such repositories.

Book News Annotation:

Publicly introduced in 2001, the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) has become a key tool in the development of digital library systems. In this resource for cataloging professionals, Cole (U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and Foulonneau (National Center for Scientific Research, France) introduce readers to the technical details of OAI-PMH and discuss the organizational aspects of its implementation. They also consider the implications of metadata sharing via OAI-PMH for metadata-authoring practices, metadata aggregation procedures, and digital library service design.
