Harvesting Using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol: What can your OAI stream tell you
From REBEKAH CUMMINGS
Want to understand what happens behind the scenes with the MWDL harvesting? In this webinar, Sandra McIntyre and Anna Neatrour will explain the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvestiong (OAI-PMH) and how it makes metadata aggregation possible in the MWDL. They will explain the process of harvesting and how MWDL normalizes your metadata. They will also show you how you can learn from your collections' OAI stream by using the six query verbs (requests) defined in the OAI-PMH.
