Open Archives Initiative - Protocol for Metadata Harveseting

The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) provides an application-independent interoperability framework based on metadata harvesting. There are two classes of participants in the OAI-PMH framework:

  • Data Providers administer systems that support the OAI-PMH as a means of exposing metadata; and
  • Service Providers use metadata harvested via the OAI-PMH as a basis for building value-added services.
