What is this thing called “virtual depository”?

A recent post on govdoc-l regarding virtual depositories got me thinking about definitions and what exactly IS a virtual depository. So I decided to explore the etymology of the term. Please go to the FGI library and check out “Toward a definition of ‘virtual depository'”, my little thought piece on what it the term means and how I understand it. By all means, please post comments/ideas/suggestions/diatribes at the end of the page.
