Hi Jodi,

X and Y would be two collections ("datasets") from two different 
libraries. It could also be two subcollections or within one collection, 
but I think making them separate ones will make it more illustrative.

Do you have a suggestion on how to clarify or replace X and Y with 
specific existing collections/libraries as examples?
