I use a modified version of the original Exporter 
(OpenILS::WWW::Exporter) and have used it to export a couple hundred 
thousand records at a time.  Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I 
believe a default install still puts the handler in place so you can 
call http://<your_server>/exporter 

You can export bib or authority records, in MARC21, MARCXML, or BRE 
formats, including holdings if desired.  You can feed it single bib id 
or pass it a text file of ids, created from a report for instance.
