OAI release beta version of metadata harvesting protocol
Scott Wilson, CETIS staff
May 14, 2002
The Open Archives Initiative (OAI) has released a beta version of the next major release of their Protocol for Metadata Harvesting.
PMH 2.0b is now available from the OAI website. A production release is expected in June 2002. Version 2.0 of the protocol adds a number of new features, announced earlier this year.
The protocol provides a means for repositories to expose their metadata for harvesting by search engines and portals, enabling users to search multiple repositories from a single screen.
There has been a great deal of activity in the OAI in the past year, with large numbers of libraries and repositories implementing the harvesting protocol.
More information is available on the OAI website.
