English abstract

In the Open Archives Forum mid-project review, the introductory OAI tutorials provided in conjuction with the Forum's workshops were identified as an important output of the project, and the project was advised that 'the tutorial should become a strategic product of the project' and that the project should package the tutorial as a clear product' that would remain available beyond the term of EU project funding. The only way to achieve this was to create an online tutorial. The tutorial would cover a range of topics at an introductory level, focussing on technical aspects of the implementation of the OAI-PMH, and based largely on the material presented at the Lisbon and Berlin pre-workshop tutorials. The challenges addressed in developing an online version of the tutorial included turning presentation-style outlines into a continuous narrative, providing some level of interactivity to compensate for lack of access to tutors for questions and discussion, and ensuring that the tutorial can easily be maintained in order to extend the period of its usefulness and allow for the possibility of providing versions in languages other than English. The tutorial is available now, and will be upgraded during September in response to review and other feedback.
