CONTENTdm & Z39.50

How it works:

ZContent is a Perl script and module that provides a
Z39.50 target for the CONTENTdm server.


Perl versions
5.6.1 and 5.8 will both work.



The communication takes place as follows:

Z39.50 Client

<== z39.50 ==>
ZContent <==
HTTP ==>
CONTENTdm

ZContent is based on the open source SimpleServer Perl
module which is provided by Indexdata.
(http://www.indexdata.com/simpleserver/).


SimpleServer
is based on the YAZ toolkit, which is also provided by
Indexdata. (http://www.indexdata.com/yaz/). USMARC
Records are created using the MARC
-
Record perl module.
