Not sure, but wanted to mention islandora, a fedora front end for Drupal. Not sure if it is relevant here. Also there is bitstream module for Drupal called http://drupal.org/project/bitcache that is quite reliable, not sure if compatible though

We've tested a Drupal module (http://drupal.org/project/oai_pmh) that imports collection metadata from OAI-PMH compliant repositories, and it works well enough, but it still puts us in the same but as you with no bitstreams.
We're talking to the company that built the OAI-PMH module about developing something for OAI-ORE that will get us the bitstreams (or bitstream links) while leaving the master files (i.e. high-resolution TIFFs) in the underlying DSpace repository.

Yes, you have to manually move any actual bitstreams...the OAI plugin for Omeka just handles import of metadata (but it does that well). 

We've been thinking of using Omeka to provide a 'user-compelling' sort of front-end for various "exhibitions" featuring DSpace-based content.  I'd love to do a wholesale 'skin' of DSpace with Omeka but until accessing the bitstreams works in a more automatic fashion, it's not really feasible.   

Perhaps that's something OAI-ORE might address or some sort of METS implementation could fix but right now there's just the OAI support on each end.

Wally,

Yeah, Omeka has the kind of functionality we're looking for, in terms of presentation but does the OAI import function only import metadata? 
Do you then have to manually add things like thumbnails, images associated with a record, and links to master files like TIFFs or media files?

I've done some work with Omeka (www.omeka.org) as a front-end to DSpace.  Omeka supports OAI import so you can spend all you time on fixing the presentation (not worrying about doing the metadata import).

We're looking at using Drupal as a front-end to Dspace repositories and I can't help but think we're not the only ones. Anybody out there doing something like this? We're think of Drupal as primarily a presentation layer to make some collections prettier and interactive but wouldn't be opposed to Islandora scale functionality.

Best,
Jason
