Katherine,

I greatly appreciate your response.

My understanding of OAI is cursory at best, but I thought that OAI
compliance required supporting the Dublin Core scheme/format?

Hi Stephen

Sorry, I misunderstood what you were after. I guess what you want is the
ability to export a collection as OAI (currently we provide MARC, METS,
DSpace formats).
I'm not sure what kind of file OAIster wants
Is the file you are after like the result of an OAI request? Can you set up
your Greenstone with an oai server, send a request to it, and then save the
XML result as a file?

If you wanted to try this, you can use our OAI server to test the format
before setting up your own one.
http://www.nzdl.org/cgi-bin/gsdl-svn/oaiserver

If this is not suitable, then I guess the answer is no. If this is something
that many people might want to do, then we could look at maybe implementing
it in the future.

I hope this helps,
Katherine

I am sort of confused. We would like to be able to generate an OAI
compliant file with a colelciton in Greenstone to make available for
harvesting outside of Greenstone via OAIster. Does Greenstone allow for
this?

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Stephen

Hi Arthur and Stephen

Michael from dlconsulting (dlconsulting.com) has done some work on this, and
our OAI server now validates. The 2.81 release contains the new server if
you'd like to try it. You can get it from www.greenstone.org/download

Regards,
Katherine

Stephen,

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:

http://libtest.lanl.gov/

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.

Stephen
