[OAI-implementers] Extensible Repository Resource Locators (E
Tue, 28 Oct 2003 14:31:17 -0500
Sorry if you are having trouble getting this service to work properly. As a
web service, there should be no problems, but I'm told that browsers are
having trouble applying the XSLT stylesheet to the XML response. Turning on
cross-domain browsing in IE may help, but that's not really an acceptable
solution. I should have it fixed soon.

> This service can work with any repository registered in the

> For oai-identifiers, the Core ERRoL pattern is this:

> Below is a example of a Core ERRoL. This resolves to a list
> of Extended
> ERRoLs that will return the various types of metadata and
> content related to
> that identifier.
> For repositories that don't use the oai-identifier scheme,
> the Core ERRoL
> pattern is this:
> "http://purl.org/oai/" + <repositoryIdentifier> + "/" + <identifier>

> Comments and suggestions are welcome.
