I've bumped on several ocurences, in the report, of the expression
"the library world"
e.g.

"the library world's identifiers for authority control" (scope [1])
"vendors outside the library world may be able to adapt..." (benefits
to developers and vendors [2])
"Standardization in the library world..." (the current situation [3])

I'm wondering if that expression is not a kind of jargon left over
from informal discussions in the group ("in libraryworld"). Does
everybody feel comfortable with it ? Should we use "library community"
instead ? or just "libraries" as expected in [4] ?

If I'm the only one to feel strange about "library world", we may just
leave it as is...
