We've made some changes to the University of Michigan OAI data provider.
The data provider now reflects the fact that we are providing records from
the HathiTrust Digital Library (http://www.hathitrust.org/), formerly called
MBooks. The HathiTrust Digital Library contains Google-digitized books and
journals from a consortium of institutions including the University of
Consequently, OAI sets that were originally named "mbooks" are now named
"hathitrust". Please change your harvesting protocols to reflect this.
In addition, we have modified the MARC and oai_dc formats to correct and
amplify the information we are providing, based on feedback from those who
have harvested us in the past. For instance, the 245 field now includes the
statement of responsibility (subfield c). We hope the records will be more
useful as a result.
Please contact me with any questions.
