Introduction

Harvesting with DSpace is performed using the OAI-PMH standard. The OAI-PMH allows DSpace to collect metadata from other compliant repositories and provides metadata for other repositories to collect.

This enables the contents of the repository to be mirrored to other compliant systems very easily. This metadata interoperability greatly enhances the visibility of the repository contents on the internet.

A new OAI code base was introduced with the release of DSpace 3.2. This new code can use the PostgreSQL or SOLR database for OAI management.
