OAI Metadata Harvesting Workshop

Various authors, JCDL2003, Apr 29, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This page is a set of position statements submitted by participants in the upcoming OAI Metadata Harvesting Workshop at the Joint Conference on Digital Libraries in Houston at the end of May. The issues here are remarkable consistent with those I see on the RSS-Dev or Syndication discussion lists. Right off the bat we have NSDL's Naomi Dushay commenting on the problem of inconsistent metadata from providers. OAIster's Katrina Hagedorn raises the possibility of automated repository discovery. The RSS solution was to do nothing, and to let each aggregator solve the issues in its own way. This, realistically, is also the only option for OAI.
