The API guide describes entry points that can be used to interact with the catalog.
The GeoNetwork API allows to manage all the catalog (eg. users, groups, editing, formatter, processing). The CSW is the OGC standard to use to search, retrieve record in XML format and can also be used for transactions. OpenSearch and ATOM focus on search and data download. Q is the main catalogue search service based on Lucene.
