Re-set OAI harvester specs

Postby danscott » Fri Oct 26, 2012 8:44 am

Hi there

I am trying to upload content to OCLC WorldCat. The files have gone on okay but in the wrong sections. The explanation I have received is this:
"If your server is configured to send community-level setSpecs in the OAI configuration, and the OAI harvester (Digital Collection Gateway) receives these setSpecs before it recieves the collection-level setSpecs for your server, then the Digital Collection Gateway will configure the resulting records in WorldCat to be associated with the community-level setSpec rather than the collection-level setSpec. The reverse is also true; if the collection-level setSpec is received before the community-level setSpec, then the WorldCat records will be associated with the collections rather than your server's community.

The solution for this is to reconfigure your OAI harvester so that the OAI data uses the collection-level setSpecs for your data. Once this is done and your server is re-syncronized with WorldCat via DCG, the resulting records in WorldCat should be associated with the correct digital collections when viewed in WorldCat."

Can anybody advise on how to do this? If so, please can you email me at dan.scott@socialsciencesdirectory.com.

Many thanks
DAN

Hi Dan,

Can you confirm that you're using Open Harvester Systems? It's not clear from your message that you are.

Hi Alec

Thanks for getting back so quickly.

I'm not sure. Forgive me - I'm not an IT person but I'm doing all this stuff myself so I need some hand holding. If you can tell me whereabouts within the OJS set up to look, I will tell you.

Cheers
DAN

Hi Dan,

OK, it sounds like you're using OJS, not OHS; OHS is a different application entirely. I'd suggest re-posting your question in one of the OJS forums.
