OAI Static Repository Gateway

Welcome, to our Static Repository Gateway. This service transforms Static Repository files (read the specs here) into OAI-PMH harvestable repositories.


Please be aware of the following restrictions we set:

  • The OAI Static Repository must conform to the OAI Static Repository specification. Specifically:
    • The OAI Static Repository must validate against the XML Schema that defines the format for OAI Static Repositories.
    • The network-location of the OAI Static Repository must be a HTTP address, i.e. the network-location must start with 'http:// or https://'.
  • In addition, our Gateway imposes the following restrictions:
    • The network-location of the OAI Static Repository must have a suffix '.xml'. E.g.
      http://digital2.library.ucla.edu/static-respository/sample.xml
    • The network-location of the OAI Static Repository must contain characters from the following set: [a-z] [A-Z] [0-9] '/' '+' '-' '%' '.' ':' '_' '~'
