Open Archives API » Open Archives URI

All records presented on Open Archives have an URI. The URI consists of the domain name, a code for the source archive and a GUID. For example: https://www.openarch.nl/rat:48c2b836-385f-11e0-bcd1-8edf61960649

The URI resolves to content based on the given HTTP Accept header:
