This is available as a dump for their traditional holdings product,
which makes it possible to do just this (i.e. use SerSol cleaned
holdings/access info in a local system). My working with SerSol has
brought me to see them as essentially a great data aggregation service
with some OK software bundled in. We are looking ahead to possibly
using this technique by loading their data into a local ERMS.
Agreed that such an availability of data would be a great service with
the Summon metadata as well.
