Hi Alex,
Similar to other replies, at the University of Lincoln we hit up the
following URL for each of our staff profile pages
(*http://staff.lincoln.ac.uk/XXXXXX where "XXXXXX" is the staff ID;
example: http://staff.lincoln.ac.uk/000947 ):

(Again, "XXXXXX" is the staff ID. Outlook will probably break that long

The response is json.
We *used* to use the RSS version of that URL + Feed2JS to display the
list, but it now happens on the web server as the page is built (cached
for speed).

On our main website, we have a staff directory which includes a page
with a list of publications for each member of academic and research
staff.  We would like this page to pull the list of publications from
Eprints.  I have suggested that the page could be constructed from a
canned search of eprints, such as
tml.  I'd like to know how others have achieved this goal?
Particularly, which tools were used (XML, RSS, JavaScript, etc).

Many thanks!
