Indeed. The SUNLINE system, the one I work with, is ten independent
libraries who just happen to share a server (but who also cooperate
extensively as autonomous entities). We've got on the order of half a
million bibliographic records, and a higher number of item records. (An
item is an instance of a bibliographic record, such as "this particular
copy of the Camel book" as opposed to that general edition of it.)
