We've been twitting new resources for a while now at @ubcnewbooks and I
added annotations when the topic came up last time. Until just now the
annotation was:

        subject:        "LC subject",
        isbn:           "ISBN13",
        call_number:    "(local) call number",
        author:         "Author",
        title:          "Title",
        alternate_title:"(from MARC 880 if available)",

// And since just now I've added these to closer align with the

        type:           "book|ebook|music|map|video|...",
        year:           "20xx",
        url:            "http://url.of.ebook/if_available";

It's hardly MARC, but it's something. One thing I haven't decided is
whether the 'url' should point to the item's catalog record or to the
ebook url, since the catalog url is in the actual tweet.
