Services: Harvest Manager

The Harvest Manager is used to administer the collections within the repository and communicates with the NSDL's ingest process to manage the automatic gathering and aggregation of OAI-PMH metadata from outside collectors. The harvested OAI records are used by the ingest process to construct metadata objects and resource representations within the repository.
