This paper puts forward the framework and functions of the OAI-PMH based interoperation of digital archives and after one of the main digital archival metadatas EAD and its mapping with DC, which is generally supported by OAI-PMH, are introduced, the technical principles on how EAD can be shifted into DC, and particularly, how the context information between EAD subordinate components can be kept after being shifted into OAI records, are discussed. At last, the existing problems in the process are analyzed, and some solutions are advanced.
