Profium Metadata Server supports OAI-PMH interface

Profium Metadata Server supports OAI-PMH metadata harvesting interface from version 4.6.2 onwards.

This enables the exposure of stored metadata through a standardized API. Several repositories may be linked together to form one large metadata repository.

Data providers utilizing OAI-PMH-protocol keep data repositories offering structured metadata. Data is harvested with OAI-PMH service requests over standard HTTP. Responses are sent in XML. The format of the offered metadata depends on application area, it can be for example Dublin Core, IEEE LOM for learning material or MARC for library metadata. Harvesting of metadata is done periodically, for example once a day. Compared to real-time harvesting the OAI-PMH is lighter to implement and the protocol is expandable.
