Non-library specific solutions

Libraries are a relatively small sector with limited means of innovation. We should make sure we are learning from the best, and not just muddling around in our own little stagnant backwater of a much bigger pond.

Identifiers

All kinds of "entities" described in librarie's metadata should have identifiers that make it possible to explore the relationships they are involved in with other entities in the metadata.

Mashability

This is strongly related to identifiers. If we have good identifiers we can make it possible to connect metadata from different sources and make it possible for users to explore relationships between entities in novel and interesting ways.
