for not exactly LOM, but the IMS metadata set (LOM + minor 
modifications) ... check the CSTC archive with baseURL

its the older v1.1 PMH, but the XML encoding of records and IMS standard 
have not changed since then (i think). this mapping was set up and 
tested with the iLumina project, that uses the IMS metadata set internally.

for an example record, try: 

in general, to find other implementations for a metadata standard, you 
can also use the UIUC registry (which is apparently not linked into the 
OAI website yet). if you go to:
you will be able to find all archives that support a particular metadata
