Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Are the records available via OAI-PMH?

Yes, the system makes available all metadata records via an OAI-PMH endpoint located at this url. Additionally each collection and partner has an OAI-PMH endpoint that you can use if you are only interested in a small subset of records that might be contained in a single collection.
