as far as i can see, this might solve half of my problem. i guess, the
applicable use case would be http://iesr.ac.uk/use/use-cases/usecase6.html .
i would still need to tell zotero which oai identifiers to look up, though.
but this seems like an unnecessarily complicated solution for this
particular case: the application - zotero - is already on my site, reading a
page, and is really just one 'link' away from the oai interface.
the reason why i'd prefer oai pmh to unapi in this scenario is the oai_dc
metadata format which all repositories need to provide, whereas with unapi
there is no such common format.
