    OAI Harvesting

    This information is not applicable to Primo VE environments. For more details on Primo VE configuration, see Primo VE.
    Primo can harvest records from an OAI repository by sending scheduled OAI-PMH requests. In order to harvest, Primo requires the following information:
    • The OAI server IP address and port number.
    • The OAI set to harvest.
    • Indication of whether the OAI repository being harvested is a static OAI repository.
    For ongoing harvesting, Primo retains the data and time of the last request.
    Verify that the OAI server returns a valid response. If there are any technical issues with the connection, contact the provider of the repository.
