I actually needed to work with this myself recently and came up with the 
attached script. I'd be interested to hear if it works for you.

Save it somewhere, and then add an external application data source in 
tellico. Set the format type to bibtex. The script understand title, author 
and keyword. So in the data source settings, click

- title and set "-t %1"
- person and set "-a %1"
- keyword and set "-k %1"

The bibtex doesn't get stripped cleanly, so I need to tweak Tellico for 
that. But if should return plenty of results.
