The Library of Congress is providing set descriptions, see

The descriptions use the oai_dc schema.  They are essentially
collection-level records for the underlying collection of content EXCEPT
that I use "Records for " at the beginning of the title.  When I wanted to
do this, I could not find another pattern; you should not look at the
practice you infer from them as authoritative in any way.

I would be interested in knowing who (if anyone) is finding them useful.
