Subject [greenstone-users] OAI Document Download Server Requirements
Hi Everyone,

I'm just getting started with a digital library project. I'm
developing a system focused on metadata entry, including user security
and work flow. The intention is to use this system to create
Greenstone collections. If anyone's interested, a very rough prototype
is at http://flashlit.serveall.net/flashlit. Now that I've introduced
myself a bit, here's my question.

I was excited to see that in the Greenstone OAI import there's a get
document checkbox. The OAI-PMH standard only addresses metadata, not
the transfer of the actual document. So my questions is what is are
the requirments for Greenstone to be able to download a document? My
guess is that it needs a URL to the document in the dc.identifier
field. Is that correct? Any other details?

Thanks!
