Conditions for re-use of descriptive metadata for materials from the INHA digital library
Metadata descriptions of materials from the digital library are made available in a simplified format, the Dublin Core, through the OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative – Protocol for Metadata Harvesting) data exchange protocol. This protocol and its specifications may be used freely. For more information: www.openarchives.org.
The descriptive metadata format is the unqualified Dublin Core (or Simple Dublin Core). This format, designed for simple und unambiguous description of online documentary resources, comprises fifteen metadata terms. Each term is optional and may be repeated.
Bibliographic records are retrievable through the OAI-PMH protocol and exposed in the OAI repository: http://bibliotheque-numerique.inha.fr/oai/?verb=Identify.
It is also possible to retrieve only a portion of the data, since the repository is organized in record sets according to:
- the type of document: for example, Printed materials
- the subject (categories from the Collections pages): for example, Journal et correspondance d'Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863).
The complete list of available sets can be viewed at this address: http://bibliotheque-numerique.inha.fr/oai/?verb=ListSets.
The OAI repository is updated at the time of the monthly upload and upon every record modification.
The use of these metadata is free of any charges and restrictions, provided that their source is acknowledged (the content of each field should be displayed).
