    OAI Harvesting

    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.
