OAICatMuseum OAI-PMH repository software

The OAICatMuseum software, developed by OCLC Research, allows museums to disclose descriptions of collection items as well as pointers to digital surrogates using the LIDO XML Schema. It can be used to efficiently share digital images with trusted partners who have requested access to museum content, or with the networked world at large.
