Early Librarian Libraries Database Desiderata

So say, just hypothetically (hrm, hrm) that there were to be a searchable/browsable database of early (pre-1825) American private libraries (in effect taking some of the data collected here and presenting it in a more robust way, including unitemized libraries, proposed libraries &c., all in one place).

What info would you like to see included? What ways would you like to be able to search, sort, and/or browse the data? (I'm intentionally leaving this open-ended instead of laying out what I've got so far in order to get the widest range of responses and thoughts). Drop me an email, or a comment here. Would very much appreciate your suggestions and thoughts.
