Mac, 

Likewise, this seems to be the purpose of OCLC's ILS synchronization
gateway (see http://www.oclc.org/us/en/productworks/ilsgateway.htm): detect
changes in member libraries' records and add any new content to the OCLC
Master Record. 

Although, based on your description, it sounds like SkyRiver's system is
operational and not still a pilot project.
