English abstract

Today more and more information is created in digital form. One of the key challenges faced by today’s information managers is the need to inter-relate different sources and types of information with different formats, data structures and description standards. Using metadata to record data about information sources allows an initial assessment of compatibility and provides an avenue for merging information or for exchanging information between systems. Another service has gained momentum nowadays is the Metadata Harvester. Metadata Harvester provides indexes or harvests metadata, from different open access archives and open access journals. This paper describes Metadata, Open Access Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) and major Metadata Harvesting Services in India.
