The Registry Interchange Format - Collections and Services (RIF-CS) schema was developed as a data interchange format for supporting the electronic exchange of collection and service descriptions.
It organises information about collections and services into the format required by the ANDS Collections Registry.
RIF-CS Java API
The RIF-CS Java API provides assistance to Java developers in the assembly of RIF-CS documents by providing classes for most RIF-CS elements, enabling processing of elements as objects, avoiding repetitive XML API calls. Download the latest RIF-CS Java API from developers.ands.
