Introductions and start the initial meeting

Goals for conversations:
The 4 models:
Every vendor offers this as their standard offering. Complete separation between institutions that involves a separate system installation per institution. ILL or Resource Sharing software is needed to connect them to each other.
What elements are crucial for ILL/Resource Sharing software to function well? Is something missing now? Is something working well?
Relates to these specific vendor models/General notes:
Standard shared ILS installation of every vendor that involves a single installation of the system for the entire consortium. Typically used in a library with branches where sharing financial information is not an issue. Standard acq functionality around needing multiple fiscal years would be needed. Administrative controls need to be granular at the branch level for this to work well in a consortial setting.
Could this model satisfy all consortial scenarios with enough granular permission options? If not, what is needed?
This is similar to model #2 but provides walls between institutions when it comes to both patrons/circulation and financials. What necessitates these complete separations?
This is similar to model #2 but provides walls between institutions for financials only. Could these separations be handled differently?
Note: The host believes based on past research that the last two are really just special cases that could be handled with the 1st 2.
