The Purdue University Libraries has developed an interface, OAISRB, for the Open
Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) to data grid resources
served by the Storage Resource Broker (SRB). OAI-PMH defines a protocol for
exposing and harvesting metadata from networked repositories. Developed by the San
Diego Supercomputer Center, SRB provides a uniform interface to heterogeneous storage
over a network. This presentation will briefly introduce both technologies and
demonstrate their interaction using OAISRB.
