28         <title>Scenario 1: Le Grande University</title>
29         <para>
30           Le Grande University is a large academic institution that
31           features one main library and six libraries with specialized
32           collections distributed across campus. Circulation counts are
33           low, search sessions are low volume but lengthy and in-depth,
34           faculty and students make heavy use of shared resource lists
35           and RSS feeds for lists of new resources in areas of interest.

39         <title>Scenario 2: Metropolitan Public Library Consortium</title>
40         <para>
41           The Metropolitan Public Library Consortium consists of one large
42           central reference library, a set of 33 branch libraries in the
43           city core, and 25 branch libraries distributed throughout the five
44           recently amalgamated suburban areas that were once independent public
45           libraries.
46         </para>
47         <para>
48           Circulation counts are extremely high. Search sessions are high
49           volume but typically short in duration and simple title / author
50           searches. Catalog interfaces must be available in many different
51           languages to support the diverse population of patrons. The staff
52           client interface must be available in both official federal
53           languages (French and English).
