Oxford coming up; Librarians suggest libraries

Stay tuned for Oxford University’s collection, coming on line later today or tomorrow. Then I’ll start bringing other Z39.50 libraries on fairly quickly, in order of user interest, connection speed and record parseability (I’m trying to do everything with Marc records now). Oh, and they need to be open to anyone and available all the time. The Z39.50 world is fairly new to me, but there are apparently thousands of people involved in it.

If you’re a librarian and know what the heck I’m talking about, feel free to suggest candidates. For starters I’d like to add some large US university libraries, to fall back on when the LC is slow. Oh, and I need a shoulder to cry on: Marc21 is blithering nonsense!
