Harvesting metadata between Microdata Library and Pacific Data Hub catalogue

Update from Monday, September 30, 2019

A harvester is currently being developed to "pull" metadata from the Microdata Library across to the Pacific Data Hub dataset catalogue to improve discoverability of these datasets.

The images show some testing in a development environment.

 

 

The following will be extracted by the harvester:

  • A description of the collection
  • Key metadata fields
  • Resource files such as questionnaires, reports and background information

The final harvester should be complete by the end of October.
