Submitting a Collection to MWDL
To include a collection for harvest into the Mountain West Digital Library, complete the form Submit a Collection for Ingestion into MWDL. If the repository that hosts the collection has not already been harvested by MWDL, talk with your repository manager about becoming a Member Repository.
Resources for Member Repositories
Mountain West Digital Library harvests from many digital collections repositories around the region that have joined as Members. We welcome new Member Repositories at any time. Please see our guide to Becoming a Member Repository.
Preparing for Harvest
The Mountain West Digital Library welcomes new hosting hubs to the network of digital collections about our region. To ready your repository, please see Setting Up a Repository for Harvest..
Checking the OAI Stream
Querying your collection's OAI stream in a Web browser is a great way to check the mapping of your fields, and to see if any text is getting truncated or any non-Unicode characters are being included, leading to garbling of the results. Check out our instructions for OAI Queries. OAI Queries.
