However, a service like this doesn't mean that you can reuse it for
anything other than personal use. I am part of a ongoing conversation
with UKPMC where they stated that they could not openly allow large
scale reuse of their OAIPMH provided metadata. They said they could for
their 'OA subset', but not for any of the others as they have
contractual obligations to their metadata suppliers.
