Greenstone Is Digital Library Collection

Greenstone by Greenstone Team is a suite of software for building and distributing digital library collections. It is not a digital library but a tool for building digital libraries. It provides a new way of organizing information and publishing it on the Internet in the form of a fully-searchable, metadata-driven digital library. It has been developed and distributed in cooperation with UNESCO and the Human Info NGO in Belgium. It is open-source, multilingual software, issued under the terms of the GNU General Public License. Its developers received the 2004 IFIP Namur award for " contributions to the awareness of social implications of information technology, and the need for an holistic approach in the use of information technology that takes account of social implications. "
Greenstone 2.86 is highly interoperable using contemporary standards, It incorporates a server that can serve any collection over the Open Archives Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH), and Greenstone [greenstone2.86.exe] can harvest documents over OAI-PMH and include them in a collection. Any collection can be exported to METS (in the Greenstone - 62MB METS Profile, approved by the METS Editorial Board and published at http://www. loc. gov/standards/mets/mets-profiles. html), and Greenstone 2.86 can ingest documents in METS form. Any collection can be exported to DSpace ready for DSpace' s batch import program, and any DSpace collection can be imported into Greenstone.
Greenstone has two separate interactive interfaces, the Reader interface and the Librarian interface. End users access the digital library through the Reader interface, which operates within a web browser. The Librarian interface is a Java-based graphical user interface (also available as an applet) that makes it easy to gather material for a collection (downloading it from the web where necessary), enrich it by adding metadata, design the searching and browsing facilities that the collection will offer the user, and build and serve the collection.
