Hi

Thanks to your response. My PERL  programming is not that good. I will
settle to use  any generic XML format as long as it harvest the URL from the
harvested Data Providers' record. I have gone through the instructions. From
the instruction 
      2- Edit the configuration file 'cfg/cfg.d/oai_harvester.pl' and create
a new configuration for the service you want to harvest (an example is
provided in that file) eg: 
How is the new configuration file for the new service to be name? is it
possible to name the configuration file, for example as iruz.pl so that in
the next set of instruction,


		$c->{oai_harvester}->{service_name} = {
       			 url => 'http://oaiserver.com/oai',

I can replace the service name with iruz and the url with the oai url base
for the repository to be harvested? I am wondering how the link between the
service_name and the its corresponding configuration file can be done. I
will appreciate any pointers.

How's your Perl programming?

To quote from the page

    "you will need to write your own module which translate whatever
     XML format you're harvesting to EPrints data structure"

having said that.... the HTTP::OAI code was updated last year, and that
documentation hasn't been updated for 4 years!

Anyway - the files you want are here: http://files.eprints.org/798/
