Greenstone does have an OAI server as well as an OAI harvester. However, I just tried my server with the OAI repository Explorer at http://re.cs.uct.ac.za/ and it failed.

I did also run it through the Data Provider Validation and Registration at http://www.openarchives.org/Register/ValidateSite and it failed 2 tests, improper response to an invalid request and a problem with some characters in the data (this is my problem). The first problem may be a limit in GS' oaiserver.

We are migrating our digital collections and need to keep our collection OAI harvestable. We currently have a presence via OAIster (http://oaister.umdl.umich.edu/o/oaister/) and have intermediated through the Los Alamos Gateway at:


Does Greenstone allow for the building of OAI compliant XML files that are successfully intermediated via a standard gateway and harvestable with OAIster?

The following page suggests the inverse:


Any suggestions to approach this goal would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
