Many of you just saw Albert Betram of the University of Michigan Libraries
talk at #c4l10 about HathiTrust APIs available to anyone interested. One of
these, the BibAPI, was formed mostly by me on the basis of "Imaginary User
Needs," not actual use cases. Anyone who has use cases that aren't
well-covered by the existing BibAPI should drop me a line and let me know.

This is also a good time to mention that (and support some limited export facilities by adding an
extension to a record URL. SO...       Link to the Hathitrust
page  MARC21 binary   MARC-XML   RIS tagged format Refworks tagged
format   Perfunctory RDF

I'd love help getting the RDF more fleshed out, btw.

Again -- if you need anything else, or if you, say, wrap a nice jQuery
plugin around the BibAPI, please let me know!
