Harvest OAI Data in MarcEdit

** Placeholder shortcut topic for MarcEdit 7.  Will flesh out or shift to the learning MarcEdit text **

MarcEdit supports the ability to pull data from content repositories utilizing OAI-PMH (https://www.openarchives.org/pmh/).  The tool works by providing built in XSLT-based crosswalks for a handful of common metadata formats including:

  • OAI Dublin Core (minimal requirement for all OAI providers)
  • MARCXML (utilizes marcxml as the metadata schema name.  If your system utilizes a different name, you’ll need to change the metadata format to match the name used in your system)
  • OAI MARC (this a now defunct OAI format)
  • MODS

The tool will support any metadata format so long as you have an XSLT for the process.
