The broker application is required to implement the services as requester, whereas the user agency (the local library system) shall implement the services as responder. A use case which implies the requester communicating directly with other user agencies does not involve a broker role having the consequence the communication should not be guided by this DCB-3 based guideline. Instead the communication should in such a case be guided by the DCB-2 based guideline “NCIP Implementation Guidelines: Collaboration between Integrated (strongly-coupled) and Connected (weakly-coupled) Libraries” (see: 10. References).

For this scenario all transactions takes place between the Broker and the User Agency. The User Agency may in some cases also be the Item Agency, but this is not important for this specific scenario.
