Hi Alice,

Yes it is possible to extract metadata from Dspace using OAI-PMH interface. The exported format would be dublin core that can be converted into other formats.

We are using Terry Resse's MarcEdit tool to harvest and convert metadata from Dspace into MARC. MarcEdit has a built-in OAI harvester and has the flexibility to add custom style sheets to control how the fields get mapped.

Is it possible to export metadata from DSpace, and convert to MARC format? Iím thinking it should be possible Ė if someone could point me to steps for how I would do this, I would really appreciate it.

It would be particularly helpful if this could be done from the UI, but I suppose Iím dreaming big dreamsÖ
