RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. /ACCESSWIRE/July 12, 2022/ Auto-Graphics, Inc. announced the implementation of the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) with its digital collections management software, MONTAGE.
OAI-PMH is a protocol developed by the Open Archives Initiative to ensure interoperability between digital repositories. Leveraging repositories (data providers) and services (service providers) that offer metadata using the OAI-PMH will allow library resources to have better visibility and access. For example, many discovery services (the “harvester”) use OAI-PMH metadata to index articles from the open access institutional repository.
By participating in the OAI-PMH, MONTAGE can now serve as a data provider to ensure that library metadata can be easily discovered by researchers and institutions around the world.
Auto-Graphics supports OAI-PMH V2. It is currently in QA and should be live by fall 2022.
MONTAGE is fully compatible with all other Auto-Graphics software platforms as a digital repository: it is fully searchable from both SHAREit and VERSO.
