Metadata can be harvested for data sharing through the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH).
Among the topics are the shattered document approach to adaptive hypertext, deduplication of metadata harvested from open archives initiative repositories, facilitating access and reuse of research materials: the case of The European Library, whether openness and open access policy relate to the success of universities, and a feasibility study of an electronic publishing library service in humanities and social sciences.
Section 7 includes the open archives initiative, and section 8 is titled, "Library Issues.
Another hope was the 1999 Open Archives Initiative protocol to integrate repositories on the basis that if providing a central repository wasn't enough to get researchers depositing, maybe providing free software for creating a local repository at each institution would do the trick [EPrints 2000].
The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) provides the ARROW Discovery Service with a method of harvesting the metadata records from these repositories, irrespective of the variances in software.
This initiative will result in the creation of a low-barrier/no-cost batch export capability out of the collections management system used by the participating museums (Gallery Systems TMS), as well as a test of data exchange processes using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH).
The Repository uses DSpace, which complies with the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) framework allowing publications to be easily indexed and searched by web search engines and other indexing services.
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.
XooNIps utilizes the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) [11], [12] to support interoperability with other XooNIps platforms, and with other digital repositories such as DSpace and EPrints servers [13], [14].
The open archives initiative is another way to make more of our information available to be spidered [a spider is a program that browses the World Wide Web and creates a copy of all pages visited so that a search engine can later index the downloaded pages to provide fast searches] by Worldcat[R], by Google, by Yahoo[R], and so on, so if you're looking for something defense-related using an Internet search engine, the record from DTIC will show up--not something that has been pulled and put into an independent database to sell back to DoD.
And the request might be initiated by another program, such as a Web search engine's indexing bots, RSS aggregators, the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) harvesters, or similar programs that index materials for location on the Web or otherwise facilitate access.
