[EP-tech] OAI harvest in 3.3.12

Hi List,


I need to add a new meatdata format  for oai harvesting . The meatadata is basically DC with slight modification and called RIAN_DC (to confirm with Ireland’s national portal for oai harvesting http://www.rian.ie/) in the previous versions we had achieved this by creating a plugin in which we did:


Created two files called





At ......./perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Export/


The OAI_RIAN_DC.pm was based on OAI_DC.pm except for the name change and in OAI_RIAN_Export.pm we had defined our export format.


And within oai.pl I had simply added a new metadata format as


"rian_dc" => "OAI_RIAN_DC"


Along with other formats.


All of this had allowed us to expose our metadata in our format called “rian_dc” which would then be harvested by rian.ie.


I am trying to do the same in 3.3.12 and that does not quite work. One thing I noticed is , the oai.pl file used to have a list of metadata name and description which seem to have been changed so I tried to add mine as {custom_sets} but that did not work either.


Can I get some help  please?
