Objectives

We began the design process with a few high-level and preliminary objectives for ArcLight:

A multi-institutional open-source collaboration building a better way to find and share geospatial data.

VuFindHarvest contains OAI-PMH harvesting logic. This is part of the VuFind project (https://vufind.org) but may be used as a stand-alone tool or incorporated into other software dealing with metadata harvesting.

A community collaboration to develop an open source Library Services Platform (LSP) designed for innovation.

Since 1998, the Public Knowledge has been releasing and upgrading software intended to improve the public and scholarly quality of research, and with Open Monograph Press (OMP), it seeks to support a format that remains critical to the advancement of learning.
