One thought on “Is OAI-PMH Too Labor-Intensive?”

  1. Just to note that OAI-PMH may be labor intensive for those who are harvesting and providing a service using those harvested records, but it is designed not to be labor intensive for those becoming OAI data providers. For example, setting up a DSpace repository and putting metadata records in it makes you automatically OAI compliant. Many data provider tools, either out of the box or not, are quite simple to operate. Creating the metadata itself might be the most labor-intensive part of becoming a data provider.
