+      <section>
+        <title>Scenario 1: Le Grande University</title>
+        <para>
+          Le Grande University is a large academic institution that
+          features one main library and six libraries with specialized
+          collections distributed across campus. Circulation counts are
+          low, search sessions are low volume but lengthy and in-depth,
+          faculty and students make heavy use of shared resource lists
+          and RSS feeds for lists of new resources in areas of interest.
+        </para>
+      </section>
+      <section>
+        <title>Scenario 2: Metropolitan Public Library Consortium</title>
+        <para>
+          The Metropolitan Public Library Consortium consists of one large
+          central reference library, a set of 33 branch libraries in the
+          city core, and 25 branch libraries distributed throughout the five
+          recently amalgamated suburban areas that were once independent public
+          libraries.
+        </para>
+        <para>
+          Circulation counts are extremely high. Search sessions are high
+          volume but typically short in duration and simple title / author
+          searches. Catalog interfaces must be available in many different
+          languages to support the diverse population of patrons. The staff
+          client interface must be available in both official federal
+          languages (French and English).
