OPDS

Add Open Publishing Distribution System(OPDS) to the slew of metadata acronyms to be aware of.
Based on the widely implemented Atom Syndication Format, OPDS Catalogs have been developed since 2009 by a group of ebook developers, publishers, librarians, and booksellers interested in providing a lightweight, simple, and easy to use format for developing catalogs of digital books, magazines, and other content.
How this compares to OAI-PMH I'll have to investigate. When would one or the other be most appropriate? What tools are there to create it and use it?
