This report addresses section 7.2.2 (Collection and service description) of the CC-interop project plan, as part of Work Package B. The report will be used to inform the extension of the SCONE database to meet requirements for incorporating COPAC into clumps services and participating in the JISC Information Environment. The report notes a number of issues affecting the interoperability of collection level information, in addition to determining requirements for the development of the SCONE database. The database and associated SCAMP updating service will be amended accordingly; further changes may be identified and implemented during the remainder of the project. A data dictionary relating to collection level information produced by a number of clumps and collection description services has been compiled to assist comparisons of structure and content. This will also inform the work on the use of the SCONE structure for RIDING collection and service metadata, and mapping the structure to the JISC Information Environment.
