The question is two fold:

  • How do you let people know what stuff you have and where your stuff is?
  • Suppose we're looking at a 'piece of stuff' that you wanted to syndicate content across institutions, then what sort of metadata would you need to exchange in order to be able to build a common repository?

The first question is discussed here resource discovery. For the 2nd question see Using media rss to syndicate and share media.
