I don't know an easy way to "name" that data, which is why we simply called it "library management" data.

In doubt I prefer to keep only the clear item.

I think that the examples you give, Karen, could be used, for instance as a footnote:
"acquisitions, fund accounting, serials check-in, and other management data"

I think that it's worth leaving in the mention of library-management data, if we can make it sufficiently clear.
