The SWORD Course – Module V – Create Your Own SWORD Client

“SWORD (Simple Web-service Offering Repository Deposit) is an interoperability standard that allows digital repositories to accept the deposit of content from multiple sources in different formats (such as XML documents) via a standardized protocol.” ~ SWORD (protocol) on Wikipedia

The slides and video for the fourth module of the SWORD Course, which shows some example SWORD clients, were shared in a separate post. Below are the video and slides for the fifth module, which gives an “overview of the EasyDeposit SWORD client creation toolkit,” so that you can quickly create your own SWORD client using PHP. Enjoy!
