Angus council are meant to be paragons of open source GIS and open format usage

Aberdeen council are running a CKAN instance which migration issues is holding data back for

Planning / roads folks are tied to the official corporate address gazetteers - "definitive national address system for scotland" -> improvement service -> one scotland gazetteer

Disconnected items in the catalogue - hierarchical organisation, ranked rather than linked, investment in knowledge by archivists - doesn't match user expectations

category filtering, cross-referencing

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISAD%28G%29 - "we already don't catalogue properly" "somebody extracts a title" - a DRY approach to hierarchical data - thus date ranges disconnected from record types

sub-series and sub-collections
