An experimental research service to investigate issues in harvesting OAI compliant repositories
Description of the development of a small number of internet gateways through which users will access distributed digital library holdings as if they were part of a single uniform collection.
Colin Steele asks if 2002 will be seen as the watershed year when the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) really took off and began to have an impact on global scholarly communication? The OAI develops and promotes interoperability standards that aim to facilitate the efficient dissemination of content. The Eprints.org free software is OAI compliant and enables institutional archiving with appropriate harvesting.(inCite October 2002)
The goal of the OAi movement is to create inter-operability between archives, ultimately allowing web users to search a number of them simultaneously. This would result in a powerful new distribution channel through which researchers could collaborate. This will sit alongside and complement the formally published and peer-reviewed scientific literature provided by journal publishers. For this goal to be realised, many participating institutions will need to rely on commercially supported software and a standardised data input model. It is to create this service that Ingenta and Southampton have agreed to collaborate.
An introduction to the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH).
This list is an open, non-moderated forum to discuss any issues relating to the management of eprint servers that are OAI compliant. It was created as a result of the 2nd Workshop on the Open Archives Initiative (OAI): Gaining independence with e-prints archives and OAI.
The OCKHAM initiative has released version 0.5.3 of its Harvest-to-Query (H2Q) software. This is the first widely-publicized release of H2Q. H2Q is an end-to-end solution for providing standard querying capabilities (such as Z39.50) for OAI-PMH available metadata collections.
Susanne Dobratz and Birgit Matthaei describe the The Open Archives Forum, that started in October 2001 under the Information Society Technologies-Programme of the European Commissions 5th Framework (IST-2001-320015). (D-Lib Magazine 9(1) January 2003)
The Open Archives Forum provides a Europe-based focus on the Open Archives Initiative. The aim of the Forum is to facilitate clustering of IST projects, national initiatives and other parties interested in the open archives approach. In order to do so, the Forum brings interested parties together to build a community of interest, enable exchange of information and establish a web-based European information source for open archives. In addition, the Forum undertakes comparative reviews of technical and organisational issues.
The release of OAI-PMH v.2.0 comes after 16 months of worldwide experimentation with version 1.x of the protocol, an 8 month revision process by the OAI-tech group, and 4 months of alpha/beta testing.
