<pre wrap="">Hi,

<span class="moz-txt-citetags"></span>I've been trying out the OAI 2.0 protocol on the NSDL repository at <a
 href="http://services.nsdl.org:8080/nsdloai/OAI">http://services.nsdl.org:8080/nsdloai/OAI</a>  When I send the following request <span
 class="moz-txt-citetags"></span><!----><a class="moz-txt-link-rfc2396E" href="http://services.nsdl.org:8080/nsdloai/OAI?verb=ListRecords&from=2002-01-01&metadataPrefix=oai_dc">"http://services.nsdl.org:8080/nsdloai/OAI?verb=ListRecords&amp;from=2002-01-01&amp;metadataPrefix=oai_dc"</a> 
I get back an imcomplete list of 250 records and the following resumption token 

When I try to use the resumptionToken verb and give it this token 
(whether encoded or not), I get "resumptionToken is not a legal OAI-PMH 
2.0 verb." which seems untrue based upon the OAI protocol document I'm 
reading.  I can't tell whether that is really an illegal verb or the 
NSDL implementation is wrong or I'm not using the resumptionToken verb 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
