An Introduction to the Open Archives Initiative Object Reuse and Exchange (OAI-ORE)
- Main contributor
The group behind the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) has recently released a beta specification for a new protocol, entitled Open Archives Initiative Object Reuse and Exchange (OAI-ORE). OAI-ORE "defines standards for the description and exchange of aggregations of Web resources," a need commonly faced by digital libraries. This presentation will provide an introduction to the OAI-ORE data model and serializations of OAI-ORE "resource maps" in Atom and RDF. It will also discuss the movement towards data sharing by digital libraries using mechanisms native to the Web rather than in library-centric, high-value and low adoption protocols.
