cufts2marc

cufts2marc, a MARC record generator for titles in CUFTS resources could be a useful tool for providing access to e-journals.
cufts2marc is a utility for generating USMARC bibliographic records for the full-text journals in the collections described in the CUFTS link resolver knowledgebase. CUFTS is part of the reSearcher suite of open source tools for locating and managing electronic information resources, developed at Simon Fraser University on behalf of the Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries (COPPUL).
And CUFTS is:
an open source (GPL) OpenURL link resolver designed for use by library consortia. It supports multiple sites from one server, online management tools, usage statistics, and includes a knowledgebase of about 165 resources with about 200,000 title records. Sites can individually activate resources they have access to, as well as subserts of titles for packages to which they only have partial subscriptions.
