A syndicated library is one whose contents can be delivered dynamically and seamlessly through one or more partner instances on TidWiT.
Syndicated libraries could contain hundreds, if not thousands, of pieces of content that are constantly updated. It is much easier, quicker, and more effective to syndicate the entire library and have it dynamically updated than to do it manually and on a content piece-by-piece basis.

Any type of content could be syndicated in a library including videos, documents, courses, and assessments...
The source publisher decides the contents of a syndicated library. However, a partner may choose to “unsyndicate” certain pieces of content from a library that they’ve syndicated. This of course would not affect the source library.
Yes, a partner can add content to a library, which has been syndicated from a publisher. The content would appear on their instance of the library, and would not affect the publisher’s.
Yes, the minute a publisher updates a syndicated library, TidWiT automatically updates all its downstream syndicated instances. The process is fully automated saving the partners time and effort.

The process of syndicating libraries on TidWiT is fairly simple. It involves two steps: The first is for the publisher to designate the library as syndicatable. The second is for a partner to accept to syndicate said library on their own instance. Once the two steps are taken, TidWiT creates and locks the syndicated connection for dynamic updates.
Yes, a publisher could limit the partners who can syndicate a library.
Yes, both publishers and syndicating partners can decide to stop syndicating a certain library at any point, in which case syndication stops instantly.
