Title:Best Practices for OAI Data Provider Implementations and Shareable Metadata
Author(s):DLF/NSDL Working group on oai pmh best practices
Contributor(s):Shreeves, Sarah L.; Riley, Jenn; Hagedorn, Kat
Subject(s):Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI PMH)
Shareable metadata
Abstract:In summer 2004, 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. This ad hoc working group brainstormed a large list of areas that needed guidelines or best practices and agreed to establish a wiki, hosted by the NSDL, to write a set of best practices. This work was chiefly facilitated by Kat Hagedorn of the University of Michigan, Sarah L. Shreeves of the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign, and Jenn Riley of Indiana University. It was part of an IMLS-funded effort to establish a training program and set of resources on the implementation of the OAI PMH for data providers and DLF member institutions. The best practices work was coordinated through weekly conference calls and twice-yearly meetings held at the DLF Forums. This document presents the best practices as they existed on the wiki as of April 2007.
