About the BEN Technology Wiki

The BEN Technology Wiki is a resource for members of the BEN Collaborative to access technical information, standards, and software downloads that are useful for collections management, metadata harvesting, and participation in the BEN Collaborative.

This page is designed to provide developers with instructions and documentation on how to set up a digital library that will be able to provide the BEN portal with BEN LOM compatible Metadata in the OAI PMH format.
