Web List

Late yesterday I had a new project dropped in my lap. What is wanted is a list of on-line books and texts for our Web site. I have about 1200 items with links in our catalog, but something less like a catalog is what is desired and only including on-line resources.

I'm thinking faceted classification might be the way to go. The user picks 1 of 12 to 15 topics and is presented with a list generated from a database. My records are in MARC, but could easily be converted to XML or DC with MarcEdit or some other tools.

Anyone know of any open-source solutions for this? Any other suggestions?
