Abstract:Random samples are desired by researchers to produce results that are generalizable. We present an approach to extract random samples of metadata records from Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) repositories and others such as Z39.50 collections. Based on our approach, we developed PHP scripts to randomly extract 2000 metadata records from two digital repositories. Our approach can be used by others that need to extract representative samples from digital collections.
