A library catalog is a register of all bibliographic items found in a library or group of libraries, such as a network of libraries at several locations.

In the public #2030library with internet access, we could imagine a nested library catalog with seamless access from a local library catalog to a national library catalog, and from the latter to a global catalog.

To distinguish the nested #2030library catalogs from the current catalogs we will call it a multi-level catalog.
