    it sends a ListRecords request with from and until parameters to obtain the first batch of metadata records from the repository Additional ListRecords requests with appropriate resumptionToken parameters are sent as needed to get the full listing of records We run a number of normalization routines on the harvested records to transform the Dublin Core metadata into Primo normalized XML Normally we do a full initial harvest only once and then do incremental harvests weekly using the from and until parameters on the weekly ListRecords request IP Addresses and Systems Administration If your systems admininstrators have the practice of keeping whitelists for access to your OAI provision the address they will need to add to ensure that we will be able to harvest your collections is 66 151 7 130 Providing Metadata using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol MWDL can harvest any OAI compliant stream The requirements for the OAI protocol for metadata harvesting are spelled out at http openarchives org A few notes We recommend that you use a digital assets management system that includes built in OAI metadata provision that is easy to configure In CONTENTdm on the server configuration tab ensure that the Enable OAI setting is set to Yes Ensure that the Enable compound object pages setting is set to No We want to harvest your metadata at the object level only Our default metadata format for harvest is Qualified Dublin Core often oai qdc We can accept simple Dublin Core oai dc if need be although it sacrifices a lot of the metadata complexity We can share only what your OAI stream shares for harvest Please ensure your metadata format validates against a schema from the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative not a proprietary vendor schema See http dublincore org schemas xmls for more information about the currently recommended Dublin Core XML schemas If you have a repository that does not have built in OAI metadata provision please implement one of the many open source or low cost OAI provider tools We strongly advise against creating your own OAI provider module The OAI protocol seems simple and straightforward but it has multiple functions that must be implemented precisely and it is more complicated and time consuming to program and test than it initially appears Please understand that we do not have time to assist in testing of home grown OAI providers Take advantage of the OAI sets implementation to separate the different collections MWDL can harvest separate sets using the setSpec assigned to each item to separate the collections The setSpec should be reflected in the OAI identifier so that we can retrieve the setSpec from there Typically we harvest all records and tag only certain sets for display i e the sets that you submit to us If you do not implement sets we have no option other than to harvest your entire repository and represent it as one collection We recommend that you implement OAI deleted record status This is not required of OAI
