One of the main advantages of a repository is the description of the digital object by variables described in associated metadata. This allows the searching of the repository content like for instance in a library system.
Through an implemented appropriate metadata exposure method can a repository be harvested by external services and the content be found by a wider range of people. Metadata can be exchange by protocols like the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH), RSS or other.
