Dear Emma,

You might try the new 'OAI for Beginners online tutorial' which the Open Archives Forum has created at:


This OAI Protocol online tutorial is based on two substantial pre-workshop tutorials the OA-F project ran in 2002-3, during its workshop series in Europe. A number of people contributed to these, including Andy Powell and Pete Cliff of UKOLN, and Uwe Muller of Humboldt University in Berlin. The material was developed to an extent out of materials created by various members of the OAI itself, including Herbert van de Soempel, Michael Nelson, etc. The OA-F has built on the experience of  these live tutorials, and the online version covers most of what potential implementers of the protocol need to know. As well as extensive referencing within the tutorial, it also points to relevant external resources.

Best wishes,

Philip Hunter
