MarcEdit has a built in function to harvest records from collections which offer OAI-PMH services. Utilizing this function is pretty simple, but it can be tough to understand how MarcEdit builds queries to the server. Furthermore, there are sometimes issues relating to the server itself, so this will only walkthrough how to set the query. For information regarding harvesting from particular locations, see the MarcEdit Listserv archive in MarcEdit Online Resources & References.
This workflow is one of many MarcEdit processes that are outlined in a LibGuide produced by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The processes are linked individually in the Library Workflow Exchange to facilitate discovery of specific step-by-step workflows.
