Peer-to-peer networks have emerged recently as a flexible decentralized solution to handle large amount of data without the use of high-end servers. In this paper we present a distributed catalog built up on an overlay network called "Synapse". The Synapse protocol allows interconnection of different overlay networks each of them being an abstraction of a "community" of virtual providers. Data storage and data retrieval from different kind of content providers (i.e. libraries, archives,
