Hi Henry (& All),

Henry describing ARK:
>>  It offers an approach in which e.g.

>>       http://rutgers.edu/ark:/12025/654xz321
>>  identify the _same_ object. . . 

I see (at http://www.cdlib.org/inside/diglib/ark/) that appending a "?"
to the end of the ARKs is an indicator that a metadata record should be
returned to the browser. Is it the intent of ARK that both loc.gov and
rutgers.edu would provide the the same response for the same object? Or,
might each provide their own perspective of the object, perhaps
returning different metadata and/or conflicting metadata? E.g., if the
ARK represents a book, might loc.gov describe the book as "boring" and
rutgers.edu describe it as "exciting"? Or is the intent that they would
provide the same metadata?
