Functional requirements

  1. Wiki Markup\[Want\] Objects are always referenced by PURLs.

  3. Wiki Markup\[Must\] Collections are available through an OAI provider.
  4. Wiki Markup\[Want\] Collections are accessible to the RLG Cultural Materials Initiative, DLF Aquifer,
    and other large-scale federated systems.

  6. Wiki Markup\[Want\] There is a shopping cart and/or bookmarking system that allows users to
    return to selected items at a later time.
  7. Wiki Markup\[Want\] Reproductions of selected items may be purchased.
  8. Wiki Markup\[Must\] Tools for delivery are shared across collections as much as
    possible, while allowing for arbitrary customization of the interface.
