To establish a practice where scientific, educational or other cultural resources are by default published under an open license on the web to be read, used, remixed and shared by everybody.
Open Access & Open Science
Open Educational Resources
Create and maintain a list of sources (repos) to add
Watch out for new resources to be added
Adjusting the crawlers when interfaces change
Normalize data from different sources
Only cover resources in repos, not elsewhere on the web
Users have to know where to find your service to start searching
The approach is "off the web"
Conceptually, we have come to see [OAI-PMH] as repository-centric instead of resource-centric or web-centric. It has its starting point in the repository, which is considered to be the center of the universe. Interoperability is framed in terms of the repository, rather than in terms of the web and its primitives. This kind of repository, although it resides on the web, hinders seamless access to its content because it does not fully embrace the ways of the web.– Van de Sompel/Nelson 2015
