Ken: you could use OGC CSW for discovery, which allows for
spatial/aspatial search and present functionality,   assuming you have
some sort of standardized metadata (ISO, Dublin Core, etc.).  Sounds
like you need to connect and expose existing metadata to a search

As for implementations, you also can check out deegree
(http://www.deegree.org/) and eXcat

As well, pycsw (http://pycsw.org/) is a new project which covers OGC

Hope this helps.
