High levels of reuse depend on the source of software to be reused. To meet this need many organizations have based their reuse programs on a centrally managed reusable software library (RSL). However, although the library metaphor has guided early work in classification, retrieval, and other areas of reuse technology, experiences vary on whether a centrally-managed RSL or domain-specific RSL provides the best focus for a reuse program. While library-based reuse has worked with stable and well understood application areas, experiences differ where the diversity of business makes it difficult to share all but the most general-purpose, low-level functions
