National Library of Australia uses OCLC Research open-source software to expose digital collections via OAI
13 September 2003
The National Library of Australia (NLA) has announced that it is using OCLC Research software to expose digital content via the Open Archives Initiative's Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH). NLA used OCLC's OAICat software to create an OAI interface to the database holding metadata that describes the library's digital collections. OAICat is a Java Servlet web application that provides an OAI-PMH repository framework.
The National Library of Australia is progressively making information about its digital collections available using OAI-PMH
