The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) is a low-barrier mechanism for repository interoperability. Data Providers are repositories that expose structured metadata via OAI-PMH. Service Providers then make OAI-PMH service requests to harvest that metadata. OAI-PMH is a set of six verbs or services that are invoked within HTTP.


Make sure you follow the instruction here to configure your repository with the right OAI elements.


To be able to harvest another repository using OAIPMH you must install the [| oai_harvester] from Sebastien Francois and configure it
