URL in OAI record

Reported by: kjdon Owned by: kjdon
Priority: very high Milestone: 2.84 Release
Component: Greenstone2 Runtime Severity: major
Keywords: Cc:


Some OAI harvesters require a URL to the document in oai_dc.identifier field. Currently in Greenstone's oaiserver we just output the document id.

We need to make it possible to output a URL. I think this will need to be done in oaiserver source code.

mapping srclink to oai_dc.identifier doesn't work as the link looks like <a href="_httpcollection_/...[collection]...> Don't want the <a> tag here. Also, oaiserver code doesn't do anything with macros or .. metadata format elements. Mappign URL doesn't work either - for the item I looked at it was a file link to something in tmp directory.

It could generate something on the fly using [Source] metadata perhaps. If no Source, or if source doc not saved (eg for html, txt), then there could be a link to the greenstone version using the doc id: ...library.cgi?a=d&c=xx&d=id (would this be a valid link for oai???)

I have partly finished this. If there is srclink_file metadata, then this is used to generate a URL.

TODO: a solution for those documents which don't have a srclink. My current proposal: Allow an option to plugins to support storing the original file, and then generating a srclink_file metadata. And in oaiserver, if this is not present, provide a link to the greenstone version.

This behaviour may be customisable through oai.cfg file.

Have done the greenstone version of id.

Now, need to add the plugin options to store the original.
