Dear All,

We could use the information consumption lifecycle 
(collect->interpret->analyze->synthesize->present->publish) as a lead to get a 
hierarchical list of user needs. It is quite similar to Karen's behaviours 
image. I tried to sort some of the existing terms:

- browse / explore / find / retrieve entities
- to select an entity appropriate to the user’s needs
- to acquire or obtain access to the entity

interpret / analyze / synthesize:
- to convert entities to another format
- to merge selected entities with local data
- to reason about selected entities
- to enrich existing entities with more data
- to identify an entity
- to contextualise the entities by connecting them with other entities

present / publish:
- to create or update entities
- to annotate, comment information
- to visualize entities and their relations
- Justify, to document the authority data creator’s reason
- to make new entities accessible inside an information system
- to provide new data as LOD

Furthermore, I'd add "Knowledge bases" under "Non library information systems"

Social uses could be a yes/no property, it's quite hard to classify all 
possible goals of social functionality.
