Items may also be assigned to interior nodes in the set hierarchy.

The actual meaning of a set or of the arrangement of sets in a repository is not defined in the protocol.

There are two classes of participants in the OAI-PMH framework: In this document the key words "must", "must not", " required", "shall", "shall not", "should", " should not", "recommended", "may", and "optional " in bold face are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 .

Implementation Guidelines Acknowledgements Document History The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (referred to as the OAI-PMH in the remainder of this document) provides an application-independent interoperability framework based on metadata harvesting.

An implementation is not conformant if it fails to satisfy one or more of the "must" or "required" level requirements for the protocols it implements.

Harvesters may use datestamps to harvest only those records that were created, deleted, or modified within a specified date range.

To specify datestamp-based selective harvesting, datestamps are included as values of the optional arguments, request.

A repository is a network accessible server that can process the 6 OAI-PMH requests in the manner described in this document.

A harvester is operated by a service provider as a means of collecting metadata from repositories.

It is expected that individual communities may formulate well-defined set configurations with perhaps a controlled vocabulary for , and may even develop mechanisms for exposing these to harvesters.
