Yep, so far everybody has advocated creating some sort of turnkey
application demonstrating the use of the underlying library. Luckily
that is is well underway. For example, I have created a terminal-
based program that does simple I/O against a MyLibrary instance. It
supports simple browse and simple search (through swish-e). It also
demonstrates how to harvest and cache OAI data in a MyLibrary
instance. The tutorial draws much of its materials from this system
of scripts. I have also created a Web interface -- a portal. The user
end supports search (through SRU) and browse. The back-end does I/O
against the instance, provides the means to index the content (with
swish-e), and outputs records to be harvested via OAI.
I guess I'm on the right track.
