Note that for some images the only size currently available is thumbnail. We are actively working to provide access to at least screen-size
images for all objects in the portal.
+ Enhanced metadata may now be harvested from the portal using the Open
+ Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesteting (OAI-PMH). The baseURL for
+ this service is <b><%= url_for(:controller=>'oai',:only_path=>false)%></b>. In
+ addition to oai_dc, the supported metadata formats are mods which is the
+ enhanced metadata in the MODS format, and mods_orig which is the
+ unenhanced metadata as originally harvested. The enhanced
+ metadata includes a relatedItem type host which has an xlink OAI GetRecord URL to
+ retrieve the associated collection record in the DLF collections registry. The
+ enhanced metadata also includes an 'asset action package' extension
+ element that points to the associated asset action package. (This is an
+ experimental feature and is not entirely reliable.) In addition,
+ there are added dlf_geo_gazer, dlf_temper, and dlf_user_tagging subject
+ elements, for our value-added geographic, temporal, and social tagging.
