Goobi viewer - Connector

Connector application as part of the highly flexible digital library framework - made by the Goobi developer team

Connector for the digital library framework

The Goobi viewer connector provides several connectivity methods to the indexed data content of the Goobi viewer. Currently the connector supports two ways to let other machines communicate with the Goobi viewer:


The embedded OAI-PMH connector provides a standard OAI interface for harvesters. Dependent of the configuration it offers the following formats for receiving the content:

  • Dublin Core
  • LIDO
  • Epicur
  • ESE


The SRU connector offers the possibility to request specific information from the data store of the Goobi viewer. This is used for example by the reference manager program Citavi and others to embed the Goobi viewer data store into the databases that these programs search through.


A complete documentation of the Goobi viewer can be found using this URL:

Please notice that the Goobi viewer was formerly known as proprietary software under the name 'intranda viewer' and is released under an open source license since June 2017. Lots of our documentation and description sites still have to be updated to represent the new product name 'Goobi viewer'.
