titleNote to developers: OAI Data Provider End of Life

This OAI Data Provide has reached its End of Life.

NSDL metadata collections are now being hosted at ISKME's OER Commons. Contact Michelle Brennan <michelle@iskme.org> for information about API access to NSDL metadata.

Please update your client implementations accordingly.

XML from the NSDL repository may be harvested using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH), which is a standardized protocol for transferring and sharing metadata across open repository systems.
