That may be just the ticket -- if OAI-PMH is a reasonable step in the data
transformation (one that could offer another access method), maybe I'd
better see about making this project speak OAI-PMH first and leave the next
step to y'all.
I've been avoiding Yaz and JZKit because I don't know C, C++ or Java yet.
(Perl and PHP can do most of the things I need.)
