How specific can selective harvesting be

Postby sarangi » Mon Oct 29, 2007 11:08 am

As I have learned from various documentations, selective harvesting allows harvesting records within specific date range or within specific set.

Is it possible to harvest all articles from one author?

Hi sarangi,

No, the OAI harvesting spec only supports harvesting by date and/or by set. Unless it's possible to create a set containing only the works of a specific author in your OAI provider, OAI cannot harvest by a single author.
