OAI-PMH

The NJ/DE Digital Collective ingests data from our partners, most commonly via OAI-PMH. See Sharing via OAI-PMH for tips about setting up your feed.

If OAI-PMH is not possible for your collection, we do have other options that we are happy to discuss this with you.

Once you share your data it is then normalized and aggregated into a single output, which in turn is harvested by the DPLA. All metadata contributed to the NJ/DE Digital Collective and the DPLA will carry a Creative Commons Zero (CC0) Public Domain Dedication (http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/). However, the item being described can carry different rights.

Metadata Guidelines

The NJ/DE Digital Collective Metadata Guidelines include requirements, recommendations and best practices for preparing your collection’s metadata for participation in the Hub and the DPLA. These guidelines are not meant to be a comprehensive cataloging guide but rather a guide for sharing data for participation in the DPLA. The NJ/DE Digital Collective does not recommend a particular metadata schema, as every organization’s needs are different. However, we do offer crosswalks to MARC, MODS, and Qualified Dublin Core.
