The AHDS offers OAI-PMH and Z39.50 access to its collections level catalogue.


Our OAI-PMH harvesting service is at The OAI-PMH XML server records can be listed and browsed directly (if your browser supports the stylesheet method detailed here).

Our records can be harvested as OAI-PMH Dublin Core (oai_dc) and our internal AHDS Common Metadata Format (cmf). Where appropriate, records can also be obtained in DDI (ddi) and as TEI headers (tei). The original METS wrappers can also be obtained.

See the IESR service description.


Current record schemas are available on-line: METS, DC, CMF, DDI, TEI
