No.  I am working with our repository resources which is an eclectic mixture of resource types.  I just want to simply embed our metadata in our search results and record displays for other tools to use.  It seems cheap and reasonable to do I just didn't want to limit this feature to only certain resource types.

Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] COinS metadata format support

Hi Chad,

Are these subscription images/video/audio that libraries have? The original
purpose of COinS, as I understand it, was to get people to subscription
copies. Depending on what you're doing (i.e. the purpose/intended use)
there might be a better standard these days.

In case it helps there's more info here:
(though it looks like the generator isn't up any longer, maybe due to "OCLC
New Jersey" hosting?)

Hopefully you'll get some more helpful advice from others!
