Open Archives Initiative Releases Version 2.0 of the Protocol for
Metadata Harvesting


Ithaca, NY & Los Alamos NM-The Open Archives Initiative is pleased to
release version 2.0 of the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for
Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH). The release of OAI-PMH v.2.0 comes after
16 months of worldwide experimentation with version 1.x of the protocol,
an 8 month revision process by the OAI-tech group, and 4 months of
alpha/beta testing. Thanks to this rigid testing and revision, we feel
confident to release the OAI-PMH version 2.0 as a stable specification.

A full copy of this press release with information about the features of
OAI-PMH version 2 is available at
http://www.openarchives.org/news/oaiv2press020614.html.

The OAI-PMH version 2 specification is available at
http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/2.0/openarchivesprotocol.htm.

information.
