Harvest Method

The 'Harvest Method' specifies the means by which your metadata will be retrieved from the harvest point 'URI'.


  • The  'Add Crosswalk'  button allows users to upload an XLST crosswalk and configure it to be run during a harvest. Multiple crosswalks can be uploaded but each needs to be uniquely identified by specifying a Crosswalk Provider Type, Output Format or Metadata Prefix. Once uploaded and identified the crosswalk will be available for selection from the Provider Type, Output Format or Metadata Prefix drop down (dependent on harvest configuration). When selected, a green 'active' label will display next to the crosswalk.
  • The 'Add Supporting File' button can be used to upload a supporting file which can be referenced and used from within an XSLT crosswalk. Supporting files must be in a format XML or XSL

Visit the Crosswalks: Transform your metadata page on the ARDC website for the list of available crosswalks to RIF-CS (e.g. ISO19115, CKAN, Dublin Core, etc.)
