The OAISRB software was developed by Michael Witt and Jigar Kadakia of the Purdue University Libraries to provide an Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) interface to expose metadata from digital objects residing on the Storage Resource Broker (SRB) to OAI service providers. By harvesting metadata from the SRB, grid resources such as large research datasets from computational sciences can be represented alongside more conventional digital library objects such as e-prints and digitized archival collections.
