Easy unAPI

The paper I mentioned yesterday, Introducing unAPI, has a couple of easy ways to get started using unAPI.

If you are using Wordpress for your weblog, there is a plug-in.

The plug-in provides records for each WordPress post and page in the following formats: OAI-Dublin Core (oai_dc), Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS), SRW-Dublin Core (srw_dc), MARCXML, and RSS.
If you are running an SRU server the University of Alberta has made their Cocoon code freely available to enable unAPI. The only changes it requires is the address of the server and the record formats that may be requested. Remember if you have a Z39.50 server running it is easy to enable SRU functionality with the YAZ Proxy.
