[EP-tech] Re: 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?

take a look to the openaire plugin, it does the same. I think now you've to use a filter and not a custom set.
