OAI-ORE Specifications and Implementation Documents

The production versions of the OAI-ORE specifications and implementation documents are now available to the public, with a table of contents page. This public release is the culmination of several months of testing and review of initial alpha and beta releases. The participation and feedback from the wider OAI-ORE community, especially the OAI-ORE technical committee, was instrumental to the process leading up to this production release.

The documents in the release describe a data model to introduce aggregations as resources with URIs on the web. They also detail the machine-readable descriptions of aggregations expressed in the popular Atom syndication format, in RDF/XML, and RDFa. The documents included in the release are:

  • ORE User Guide Documents
    • Primer
    • Resource Map Implementation in Atom
    • Resource Map Implementation in RDF/XML
    • Resource Map Implementation in RDFa
    • HTTP Implementation
    • Resource Map Discovery
  • ORE Specification Documents
    • Abstract Data Model
    • Vocabulary
