Loading Institutional Repositories EBSCO supports harvesting institutional repositories via Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) or via File Transfer Protocol (FTP). EBSCO has developed a flexible framework for mapping your data to EDS. At this time we are able to load IR records in XML format that is OAI-PMH retrievable in the following metadata formats: Dublin Core (qualified and unqualified)EADJunii2METSMODS

Conservatoire Numérique des Arts et Métiers - Actualités, archives du jour de la radio et de la télévision en ligne Institutional repository software comparison The Guidelines to compare Institutional Repository Software have been published as part of UNESCO’s Open Access Strategy. The publication compares the features of the major platforms and is intended to help libraries focus on which features will help facilitate the success of their repository. Institutional Repositories (IRs) were first developed as an online solution for collecting, preserving, and disseminating the scholarship of universities, colleges, and other research institutions. Since 2000, a number of repository platforms have been developed, each with their own set of benefits and technical criteria. All of these put libraries exploring IRs for the first time in an enviable position. The products have richer feature sets, and all the major platforms are available as a hosted service, which arguably has a lower total cost of ownership and is less time-consuming than running an IR locally.

Les Bibliothèques Virtuelles Humanistes Bibliothèque numérique mondiale Apache Lucene - Welcome to Apache Lucene Éditions en ligne de l'École des chartes (ELEC) University Digital Library - Collection Overview Princeton University Library’s Arabic Movie Posters and Lobby Cards Collection was acquired in 2008 from a Lebanese collector, Abdelmassih Abou-Jaoudeh of al-Furat Publishing and is comprised of 1,748 posters and 768 lobby cards. Egyptian posters predominate with 1,474, reflecting the unchallenged prominence of Egypt in the production of Arabic feature films. Some 150 posters are for Lebanese films, 113 Syrian and 11 Iraqi. The purpose of the posters was to advertize coming attractions, and they represent films produced from 1935 to 2007. Most of the posters are on standard Arab single-sheet size paper. However, many are on non-standard sheets. Contributors

Handle System - Wikipedia As with handles used elsewhere in computing, Handle System handles are opaque, and encode no information about the underlying resource, being bound only to metadata regarding the resource. Consequently, the handles are not rendered invalid by changes to the metadata. The system was developed by Bob Kahn at the Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI). The original work was funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) between 1992 and 1996, as part a wider framework for distributed digital object services,[2] and was thus contemporaneous with the early deployment of the World Wide Web, with similar goals. The Handle System was first implemented in autumn 1994, and was administered and operated by CNRI until December 2015, when a new "multi-primary administrator" (MPA) mode of operation was introduced. Thousands of handle services are currently running. Specifications[edit] Some Handle System namespaces define special presentation rules. Implementation[edit]

Persistent uniform resource locator - Wikipedia A persistent uniform resource locator (PURL) is a uniform resource locator (URL) (i.e., location-based uniform resource identifier or URI) that is used to redirect to the location of the requested web resource. PURLs redirect HTTP clients using HTTP status codes. PURLs are used to curate the URL resolution process, thus solving the problem of transitory URIs in location-based URI schemes like HTTP. Technically the string resolution on PURL is like SEF URL resolution. History[edit] The PURL concept was developed at OCLC (the Online Computer Library Center) in 1995 and implemented using a forked pre-1.0 release of Apache HTTP Server.[1] The software was modernized and extended in 2007 by Zepheira under contract to OCLC and the official website moved to (the 'Z' came from the Zepheira name and was used to differentiate the PURL open-source software site from the PURL resolver operated by OCLC). PURL version numbers may be considered confusing. Principles of operation[edit]
