We plan to create METS objects for the various objects being added to
our digital collections. Such METS objects are already in use as an
intermediate format. We have created METS objects for electronic
versions of musical scores, and transform them via XSLT into an XML
form suitable for loading into Greenstone. See
http://chopin.lib.uchicago.edu/ for the result.
We plan to use METS for submitting objects to collaborative projects.

http://chopin.lib.uchicago.edu/ is available, but uses METS as an
