i think the sense was:

these vendor systems contain the libraries' bibliographic data in a  
central database. That bibliographic database supports management  
functions like acquisitions, circulation, patron data, as well as the  
user discovery function.


I'm not necessarily suggesting that as wording, but as an explanation  
of what was being said.
