At the end of the workshop, delegates were asked: "What should Full Disclosure do for us?" Below are some of the suggestions.

FD should find ways of communicating with all three domains (publicity, e-mail lists etc)
There should be a Full Disclosure label
FD should have a very focused retro-cataloguing funding stream
FD should be the go-between between HLF and community
There should be high-level lobbying with funders
FD should demonstrate standards being a reflection of common practice
FD should carry out a scoping survey of collections in need of cataloguing, using already available surveys
FD should be talking to system providers about implementing standards
