Greenstone Digital Library Software

Greenstone is a suite of software designed to build and distribute digital library collections. Produced by the New Zealand Digital Library Project at the University of Waikato, this innovative tool was created to "empower users, particularly in universities, libraries, and other public service institutions, to build their own digital libraries." The software consists of the Collector, which helps create new collections, modify or add to existing ones, or delete collections; and the Administration, which allows the addition of new users, summarizes the collections in the system, and gives technical information on the installation. Also included is a section comprising the Greenstone manuals, and a section that tells about the Greenstone software and where the New Zealand Digital Library Project originated. The software runs on Windows and Unix, and both source codes and binaries are available for downloading on the site.
