The author of the biblio module is working on the 7.x-2.x.

In Drupal 6, biblio is a popular module for academics, libraries and publishers But it has its own data structure rather than reusing cck fields. So some related modules were made for extra functions like apachesolr_biblio.
In Drupal 7, fields are built in the core, and we all agree that "Biblio in Fields" is the best solution.

I also would like to add more standards support in the new release like:

ONIX
http://www.editeur.org/8/ONIX/

PRISM
http://www.idealliance.org/specifications/prism

I work for some projects using biblio intensively and would like to be the mentor for students who would like to join force with the community.

I have used the biblio module

I have used the biblio module a couple of times and the ability to support cck fields and the addition of more standards supports will definitely make life easier. I will study more the code to try to apply for this project or help in some way.

It sounds like a good project

It sounds like a good project - upgrading the module to take advantage of the new D7 Fields API and to support new standards. I guess you'd need input from the biblio module maintainer.
