I wrote an article for Ariadne a few years ago that aimed to
demonstrate how to easily harvest records from an OAI-PMH provider
with Perl . The examples used a Perl module called
Net::OAI::Harvester which supports the 6 verbs, and adds a couple
more: listAllRecords and listAllIdentifiers which automatically handle
That being said, perhaps you could make a static repository 
available? You could periodically generate a static file from your
dynamic service and make the big file available as needed. Just out of
curiosity has anyone written a program that will generate a static
repository given the base URL for a data provider? It seems like a
generally useful utility that may have already been written.
