I have a query about metadata harvesting. How do we harvest metadata from
a non- DSpace repository into DSpace which allows OAI harvesting and
follows DC standards.
Appreciate your guidance in this regard.
I've been asked to investigate the prospect of populating our D-Space IR with metadata from Web of Science and Scopus, among others. I've found information on APIs (Web Services for WoS and Document Search API for Scopus) that, for the moment, covers enough of the technical side of things. I've also been in contact with both for information on their custom data options. I was wondering if anyone who may have used any of these options would be willing to share information about resource allocation for their project. I'd like to get an idea of how many people worked on it, how long it took to do the initial set up and what, if any, resources are allocated to any ongoing metadata harvesting. You can reply off-list and I'd really appreciate any information on a project of this type.
