The fifteen members of the RLG Partnership Networking Names Advisory Group developed fourteen use case scenarios around academic libraries and scholars, archivists and archival users, and institutional repositories that provide the context in which different communities would benefit from aggregating information about persons and organizations, corporate and government bodies, and familes, and making it available on a network level.
The report summarizes the group's recommendations on the functions and attributes needed to support the use case scenarios.
