Katherine,

Thank you for your comprehensive reply.

I merely want to be able to:

1> produce an OAI compliant XML file with Greenstone, so I could indeed

2> Intermediate with a gateway (such as Los Alamos) and

3> harvest with OAIster.

Previously, I performed step 1 with Luna and steps 2 and 3 as described.

Does Greenstone produce OAI compliant XML files? Or can I export my Dublin
Core from Greenstone to a XML file that is OAI compliant?

Stephen

Hi Stephen

I have just had a look on the web at OAIster and static repositories. Sorry,
I should have done this before I replied to you the first time.

After my 5 mins of reading, this is what I understand the situation is.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

OAIster harvests OAI repositories. To become a data provider, you need to
check your repository against a validator, and then register.
If you don't have a proper OAI server, then you can set up a static OAI
repository, which is an XML file.
These may be harvested by OAI repository gateways, which is what you are
trying to do?

Greenstone provides a proper OAI repository server (oaiserver), and from
version 2.81 and later should validate against the repository validator
specified on the OAIster "Steps to Becoming a Data Contributor" page.

We currently don't provide exporting a collection as an OAI static
repository.

Is there a reason why you wish to keep using a static repository rather than
setting up the proper OAI repository?

Regards,
Katherine

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.
