Case Study: PerX Experience of Harvesting & Utilising Metadata from Oxford Journals

The Pilot Engineering Repository Xsearch was a two-year (June 2005 - May 2007) JISC Digital Repositories Programme project based at Heriot-Watt University. Its goal was to develop a pilot service to provide subject resource discovery across a series of repositories of interest to the engineering learning and research community.

This brief case study illustrates some of the types of issues encountered by OAI-PMH service providers attempting to utilise third party metadata obtained via OAI-PMH.
