LibraryThing (see previous post) has my thoughts reeling about potential places of repositories in relation not only to academic and other research libraries but also within the vaster super-brain organized whole-world storage of information. Keywords in themselves are very nice, like confetti at a wedding, but does not LibraryThing offer a glimpse of something even more powerful beside these — links to the controlled vocabularies of library databases. What power searching would be possible with repositories also lubricating the controlled links to these databases worldwide, too….?
