[OAI-implementers] The state of transition from NCSTRL --> OAI
Fri, 24 May 2002 13:27:41 -0400 (EDT)
Here is some efforts that I am aware.
Larry Stone (in MIT) has implemented an OAI interface for Dienst 4.9.1 and
used in MIT etheses.
Terry Harrison (in ODU) has implemented a Dienst(4.1)-OAI(1.1) Gateway
