A python library for retrieving data from a DSpace repository.

Project description


This package provides a DSpace interface on top of the Python OAI-PMH library, pyoai. After providing the OAI-PMH server URL, items can be harvested either by collection handle or individually. Additional harvesting options such as dates are passed through directly to the pyoai client.

Changes in version 2

SWORD integration was added to support depositing items into the repository. This requires some changes in the URL handling on the Repository class.
