Hi. I was just reading through a DLib magazine article (Dec 2001), and
noticed an article talking about OAI and using set id's to put queries into.
The example was verb=ListIdentifiers&set=odlsearch1/computer%20science/1/10

Is there any general work being done on such things? Or is this just an
individual group's idea as to one way to do things?

I was just wondering what the intended scope of OAI was - just metadata
harvesting, or branching out into other areas such as searching too.
