Registering Your Registry
Step 1: Validating the Harvesting Interface

This page allows you to check the OAI interface of your publishing registry. If the interface is found minimally compliant, you may choose at that time to register your interface with the IVOA Registry of Registries. This lets other registries know where to find your registry so that they can begin harvesting from it.

Note that for a large registry, validation can take several minutes.

Enter the base URL for the OAI interface to your IVOA publishing registry:
This should be the HTTP GET version of your OAI interface; not a SOAP version.
