Valerie and Corey,
Thanks very much for the helpful tips.
We had already tried to configure through Manage Repositories but we didn't get any effect.
Now we have discovered that we need to configure also the sub-repositories. This has fixed the issue.

Hey Erhan,

I know you said you are using the OAI-PMH exports, but I made a little tool for batch exporting EAD.xml files as well as MARCXML, PDFs, and Container labels: https://github.com/uga-libraries/ASpace_Batch_Export-Cleanup-Upload

It doesn't use OAI-PMH (see Valerie's comments), but something to consider if you want the files directly and in batches. Just throwing it out there.

Dear All,

At International Institute of Social History (Amsterdam) we have successfully imported our 5000+ EAD records.

For our search environment (VuFind) we need batch export in MARCXML and EAD formats.

At the moment when we use the OAI2 ListRecords verb for the metadata prefix 'oai_marc' we receive different types of objects in the result set:


will return a 'oai:archivesspace//repositories/2/archival_objects/1'

But we only want resources (collection level) in the OAI2 export. This is the case for metadataPrefix 'oai_ead'. E.g.:


will return a  'oai:archivesspace//repositories/2/resources/1'

Can we set this with configuration? We use v3.1.0

Thank you in advance for any help or feedback,

Erhan Tuskan
