Content sharing can yield big benefits to community-oriented web projects. Web sites that join content sharing communities can both add and receive content from a centralized content library.

An example of such a community is the Inter-Institutional Collaborating Network on End-of-life Care (IICN) facilitated by Growth House, Inc. This health care collaborative involves content sharing among over thirty major organizations around the world. These groups have joined together to pool their content to improve the quality of care for people who are dying. The centralized content development systems and centralized search features for the IICN are implemented by and embedded as features on many of the web sites operated by IICN member organizations.

The role of systems in such collaborations is to work behind the scenes to implement content preparation, content storage, and content delivery. In most cases users are never aware that content features which they see on collaborating web sites are actually hosted remotely.
