[OAI-general] MODS repository?

LC's OAI repository delivers MODS, but is not open source software ready to use by others. Our OAI setup is quite closely linked to the rest of the workflow and systems underlying American Memory and other presentations of digitized historical collections at LC (Global Gateway, Prints and Photographs Online Catalog).
To date, we have simply been using the MARC to MODS stylesheet provided by LC's standards office, with the underlying records being in MARC. That doesn't currently yield MODS compliant with the DLF Aquifer guidelines. At some point, that will change, but I'm not sure when. Making native MODS records OAI-harvestable is also on the to-do list, but without a firm timeframe.

There are four:
Library of Congress Digitized Historical Collections
Indiana University Digital Library Program
OCLC Research Publications
University of Chicago Library Metadata Repository
You can see them in action at our test MODS portal (work in progress...):
