The NSDL-LONCAPA Gateway effort is part of a funded pilot project
to investigate integration between the
<a href="http://www.nsdl.org/">National Science Digital Library (NSDL)</a>
and the <a href="http://www.lon-capa.org/">LearningOnline Network with CAPA
>From the standpoint of NSDL, two things must happen on the gateway: 1) LON-CAPA
metadata must be available in a suitable XML format (IEEE LOM
and/or Dublin core); and 2) LON-CAPA must
implement an <a href="http://www.openarchives.org/">OAI</a>-compatible
harvesting protocol.
>From the standpoint of LON-CAPA, two things must happen via the gateway:
1) maintaining transparency--all interaction with NSDL is to be seamless
and "on-the-fly" from the standpoint of users; and therefore
2) tight integration is anticipated.
