I haven't seen one.

It essentially boils down to writing some sort of script that takes search 
parameters via command-line, and then outputs results in a format that 
Tellico understand (which can be Tellico XML, bibtex, MODS or RIS)

Based on a quick look, there are bibtex records in the database. I actually 
just grabbed one by importing a bibtex url directly. :)

So maybe the script could construct that URL, then echo it to tellico.
