Thanks for sending this Ashley--I'm not on the JISC list. I haven't
had a chance to look in detail, but had you looked at the Universal
Holdings Format  at all? Perhaps I'm mixing apples and oranges
here...I'm just curious to know if the two schemas are related, and
if you looked at it why you opted to roll your own. In fact, were
there any other formats/schemas you considered?
