This memo describes version 3 of the Resource Catalog. The Resource Catalog (RC) is a service for storing and obtaining metadata that describes network-accessible resources. This service is primarily intended for use by clients prior to accessing, or attempting to access, a particular resource. The RC service may thus be used (for example) to inform a client as to which of a variety of features are supported by the resource, or which methods may be used to access the resource, or which of a small set of locations may be used to access the resource.
