METS Navigator spits out HTML pages, so any file type that a Web browser
can handle can be used. As for what *document* types are handled, pretty
much anything that is a unit that makes sense to point to from search
results in some outside system, then navigated within. Books are an
obvious choice, of course, and we have one collection up displaying sets
of cards (front and back).
Future development is going to be driven by our needs here at IU, but
support for multi-volume items by creating a "parent" METS document that
links to individual ones is on our priority list, as is more
configurability for the interface (it has some now, but not enough) to
make it less "book-like." We don't yet have a timeline for finishing the
next stable version.
