Last week we were testing importing Files + metadata from a Collective Access database into Omeka Classic.
I used to try this already once about two years ago using the OAI-PMH harvester which allowed at the time METS to get the files together with the metadata.
Apparently, this is no longer the case. Instead I read the following on the Plugin page of the OAI-PMH harvester:
“Omeka has plans to translate more metadata formats, such as [MARCXML], [METS], and [RFC 1807]”
The idea we were testing last week was conceived based on the previeous experience we had with Omeka. It took a while before we got there in terms of real-world set-up. So we were really disappointed when we saw that our initial idea wasn’t working any more. For us it was one of the main reason to choose Omeka.
Is there any planning to re-deveolop METS support for this plugin already?
