Administration through the web
To apply for an URN:NBN identifier, you have to enter the URL of your
document (e.g. http://www.yourdomain.hu/yourdocument.html) in the
appopriate text field. After klicking OK, the server checks the presence
and validity of your document. If it passes the test (its valid (X)HTML),
your get an URN:NBN identifer (e.g. urn:nbn:hu-1234) assigned. The
appearing page shows two <meta> tags (HTML
and XHTML form); one of those must be inserted in the header of your
(X)HTML document (between the <head;> and
</head;> tags). After inserting the <meta> element in your document you should click
OK and your URN:NBN identifier gets finalized.
If you want to change the URL of a document with a URN:NBN identifier, you
have to specify on the Modification page the URN:NBN identifier of the
document, its URL and the new URL. The document must be accessible with
both URLs. The one at the original URL must contain the <meta> tag with the URN:NBN identifier. After
clicking OK the server checks the validity of both documents. In the next
step you have to remove the <meta> tag
containing the URN:NBN identifier from your old document and make sure it
is contained in the one with the new URL. After clicking OK the
modification of the URL for the URN:NBN identifier gets finalized.
Additional URLs (copies) can also be specified for an existing
URN:NBN. The registration of additional URLs for a URN:NBN identifier is
only allowed if the the original document contains (beside the <meta> with the URN:NBN) a <meta> tag containing a regular expression which
matches the additional URL (e.g. <meta
content="^http://solanum\.oszk\.hu/~anonymous/pr1/.*$"> -- would
permit the registration of any URL pointing to a document in the ~anonymous/pr1 directory of the server solanum.oszk.hu or in any of its subdirectories).
It is always the original (first registered) document which has to contain
the regular expressions for the additional URLs (and which has to be
specified as original document in the appropriate text field). The
presence of the regular expression is checked always at the time of the
registration of the additianal URLs.
The deletion process is similar to the modification. At the first step the
header of your document must contain the <meta> element describing the URN:NBN identifier
and before finalizing the deletion it has to be removed from there. The
document itself, however, has to be accessible (readable) through the
entire deletition process and should be only deleted after its successfull
completition. If the deleted document was the only one assigned to the
given URN:NBN, the identifier gets permanently removed from the
database. Such removed identifier are lost forever, it's not possible to
assign URLs to those URN:NBN's anymore.
Entering the URN:NBN identifier in the appropriate text field, your
browser will be redirected to the document with the specified URN:NBN.
6. URL list
Entering the URN:NBN identifier in the appropriate text field, you get a
(HTML formatted) list of the URLs having the specified URN:NBN identifier.
The original document (if not yet deleted) is listed first.
