Aspects of cataloging and metadata environment
1. Coordinated global, collective and local metadata management

Reliable local effort at the regional and global environment
The same data with many different views of the data

Data Sharing, Syndication, Synchronization, linking

Outward integration, exposure, and linking of collections (e.g. Google Books, WorldCat, other aggregators, national library consortia)

(back and forth between services)
