This wiki page provides a brief explanation of how to harvest items from a collection on another repository system.

Requirements

Check that the remote repository has a valid OAI-PMH interface with which to interact. See the help links below.

Step 1 - Create a collection to receive harvested items

Go to the community on your repository system that will host the collection and create the collection as normal.

Step 2 - Configure the collection for harvesting

Now select the collection as a collection that will harvest items from another repository and submit details of the remote collection.

See screenshot below.

Step 3 - Begin harvesting

After selecting the type of harvest you wish to do, click on the "Start" harvest button.

Step 4 - Schedule automatic harvesting updates

Go to the "control panel" and select the automatic harvesting of the collections so that the collections are properly synchronised in future after the initial harvest.

See screenshot below.
