OCLC's open source Sitesearch can search across any Z39.50 compliant
database. Also most OPAC's have Z39.50 capabilities. There are other
commercial software products that offer Z39.50 including OCLC, but I
have forgotten what their new product is.

"I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world
revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We
must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a
"person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and
property rights are considered more important than people, the giant
triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being
conquered. "

-- Martin Luther King from his speech, Beyond Vietnam:  A Time To
Break Silence,? Riverside Church, New York City 4 April 1967
