I'd double that (but hey I'm the author of the plugin). You could
create a very simple form that appears on your theme that doesn't
require visitors to log in before they post or have access to the
Wordpress backend. It gets passed through Akismet to prevent spam
submissions or you can turn on moderation if you want.

If you have the info as posts in Wordpress then, you can leverage tons
of Wordpress plugins and themes to make it searchable and accessible.
