Setting up an OAI feed -- becoming an OAI data provider -- without a repository infrastructure would be challenging, to say the least. To learn more one would need to first read the OAI-PMH specification.  You would then need to write a program to support the OAI verbs (identify, listSets, etc.). All of the metadata in the resulting "feed" would need to come from some place, and this place is usually a database of some sort. You have a database listing your content, right?
