OAI releases beta version of ORE specifications

Share this on social media:

The Open Archives Initiative (OAI) has released the beta version of the Object Reuse and Exchange (ORE) specifications as part of its OAI-ORE project.

Over the last 18 months the project gathered experts from the publishing, web, library and e-science community to develop standards for the identification and description of aggregations of online information resources. These aggregations, sometimes called compound digital objects, may combine distributed resources with multiple media types including text, images, data and video.

The aim of these standards is to expose the rich content in these aggregations to applications that support authoring, deposit, exchange, visualisation, reuse and preservation.

A forum for feedback on this beta release has been launched.
