Hello Arthur,
I think you could have a look at the BIN21 biodiversity network and
its planned virtual library. David Green has been creating 
submission forms and quality control. More information is
available at:

You wold get some ideas from there.

I'm glad you've been in touch with the librarians. I'm fighting
with the same problems when trying to organize the information
(original files) of my own organization. I would be extremely
happy if you would report about your findings. If I recall
correctly the WWW-conference had a BOF group discussing these
problems, but I have no idea how to take part in the developments
or follow discussions.
