What is virtual collections

What is “Virtual Collections”

  • OIS System to allow librarians / curators to harvest metadata from various Harvard online catalogs and create a new, topic-based collections.

  • Web-based interface for collection-level search and display of metadata, with links to digital objects.

  • A Virtual Collection constists of metadata only; records link to external digital objects


Major aspects of virtual collections

Major Aspects of Virtual Collections

  • Harvesting: Initially supporting harvesting from HOLLIS, VIA and HGL

  • No additional cataloging necessary in source catalogs (HOLLIS, VIA, HGL)

  • Local Subject Vocabulary: Curator can create a controlled list of subject terms, distinct from any subjects in the harvested records.

  • Customization: Collection can customize appearance of the Web display with XSL and CSS stylesheets.


Metadata focus

Metadata Focus

  • Harvesting of Metadata from HOLLIS, VIA, HGL

  • Transformation of Metadata from original form to final Virtual Collection form (MODS)

  • What the metadata looks like displayed in a Virtual Collection (aka Demo)


Harvesting ois harvester

Harvesting: OIS Harvester

  • OIS Harvesting software

    • reads “harvest file” of system/id pairs

      • HOLLIS002223743

      • VIAolvwork125041

      • HGLMGISRAILTRA1

    • file can be initialized from an Aleph report for HOLLIS, and the Portfolio function of VIA.

    • Harvester requests records from catalogs, transforms and loads into Virt. Coll. database


Harvesting oai pmh

Harvesting: OAI-PMH

  • Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH )

  • OAI Harvester ->http request ->OAI DataProvider

  • OAI DataProvider ->xml record ->OAI Harvester

  • HOLLIS:Data Provider from ExLibris

  • VIA:OIS Custom Data Provider

  • HGL:OIS Custom Data Provider


Harvesting transformations crosswalks xsl

Harvesting: Transformations(Crosswalks/XSL)

  • HOLLIS

    • MARC21 (xml)-> xsl -> MODS (xml)

  • VIA

    • VIA (xml)- xsl -> MODS(xml)

  • HGL

    • FGDC (xml) -> MARC21 (xml) -> MODS (xml)
