Union Catalog using Koha

Mubassir Ahsan
Thanks for the answer, vufind probably is the solution. But koha already
uses Inter-library loan (ILL) module. If it could be further extended to
use it as a union catalog compatible. My suggestions is in below:
1. Koha will provide a remote authentication token
2. Another koha will use that authentication to synchronize the database
3. Sharing could be permission based. i.e, catalog,user, accounting etc.
Is that possible?
So that it will be an standalone solution and an easy to use between
participating libraries.
