OAI-PMH

We export our META-SHARE metadata via http://metalb.csc.fi/cgi-bin/que. This data is read from a local database created via syncmeta. Syncmeta reads the metadata from META-SHARE via its sync API and creates the local database in various formats:

  • META-SHARE XML as-is
  • CMDI (in 4 differnt schemas, depending on the resource)
  • DC (as required by the protocol
  • OLAC

Known users of OAI-PMH are CLARIN (vlo.clarin.eu) and Etsin (etsin.fairdata.fi). Access is open, so anyone can harvest our metadata.

Notes

metalb.csc.fi is located on the same server as pid.csc.fi. The functionality does not require a separate server, in the long run it should be moved, probably to www.kielipankki.fi.
