On opening a collection, a small temporary lock file is created in its folder.  Before opening a collection, the Librarian Interface checks to ensure that no lock file already exists.  However, when the Librarian Interface is exited prematurely the lock file is sometimes left in place.  When you open such a collection, the Librarian asks if you want to "steal" control of it.  Never steal control of a collection that someone else is currently working on.</Text>

The top half of the screen shows the downloading controls. The bottom half is initially empty, but will show a list of pending and completed download jobs. </Text> 
    8383<Text id="39a">There are several protocols that can be used for downloading records, and these are listed on the left hand side at the top.</Text> 
    84 <Text id="39b"><b>Web:</b> allows downloads of web pages and files via HTTP and ftp.</Text> 
    85 <Text id="39c"><b>OAI:</b> allows downloads of metadata records from an OAI (Open Archives Initiative) server.</Text>

    88 <Text id="39f">Select the type of download that you want to carry out by clicking it in the left hand list. The right-hand portion of the downloading controls changes to match the options available for the selected download type. To find out what an option does, hover the mouse over it: a tool-tip explaining the option will appear. Some options are 'optional': these are presented with a check box which must be ticked on for the option to be used. Other options are 'required': these have no check box, and a value must be given for the download to be carried out. </Text> 
    89 <Text id="39g">Once the configuration is set up, you can click <AutoText key="glidict::Download.ServerInformation"/> to check the connection to the server and view some basic information about the web page or server, or click <AutoText key="glidict::Mirroring.Download"/> to start the download. There are two other button controls: "Preferences", which links to the connection section of the Preferences where proxy settings can be edited; and "Clear Cache", which deletes all previously downloaded files. You will need to set up the proxy information if you use a proxy server to connect to the Internet. If authentication is needed when a download is being processed, the proxy server will prompt for username and password.  The Librarian Interface does not store passwords between sessions.</Text> 
    90 <Text id="40">Files are downloaded into a folder in the workspace called <AutoText key="glidict::Tree.DownloadedFiles"/> (only present when downloading is enabled), and can be used in all collections built with the Librarian Interface.  Files in this area are named by their full web URL (for Web downloads) or a combination of URL and option values (for other download types). A new folder is created for each host, followed by others for each part of the path. This ensures that each file is distinct.</Text> 
    91 <Text id="42">The download list has an entry for each download processed. Each entry has a text region that gives details of the task along with a progress bar showing current activity. Three buttons appear to the left of each entry. "Pause" is used for pausing a currently downloading task. "View Log" opens a window showing the download log file. "Close" terminates the download and removes the task from the list.  </Text>
