[Archivesspace_Users_Group] OAI-PMH Harvesting to Primo

Hi Lisa,

When I was at Drexel University Libraries we tried to import collection-level metadata into PrimoVE using OAI-PMH and had a huge problem with what ExLibris said were non UTF-8 characters in the descriptive notes. My memory of this is that they reported ampersands in descriptive notes were causing the import to fail, but we had a really hard time pinning down exactly which records were failing and why, and inconsistent results with the fixes I attempted.

So, I guess just be aware that this may be an issue! Happy to dig up my notes if that would be helpful.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] OAI-PMH Harvesting to Primo

Hi all,

We are planning to implement harvesting finding aid metadata to Primo using OAI-PMH and are hoping to see examples to get ideas for customizing field names and displays (where we can). Are there any folks out there who are already doing this? We know about past Alma integration models and efforts, but are only interested in Primo examples.

Thanks in advance!
