Andrew,

been there and have read that documentation :-)

OAI is not a CRUD/REST interface so don't expect it to be able to do 
crazy stuff. For your query about user id, I invite you to read the 
above documentation on "set" - this may work, but again isn't *really* 
the point of OAI.

I can get it to return a list of records as well as a specific record based on a record ID, however, what I would like to be able to do is some kind of rudimentary query, say, pass in a user ID in the query string to return a list of records associated with that author?
