95<i>(Oct 2005)</i> Building collections on a remote Greenstone server<br />
96This scheme allows users to augment and edit collections that are held on a remote Greenstone server. Users work with a modified version of the Greenstone Librarian Interface but do not need to have Greenstone running locally. Multiple users can collaborate on the same collection (though not at the same time). <a href="http://www.cs.waikato.ac.nz/~mdewsnip/greenstone/west-yorkshire/remote-greenstone.html">Here</a> are details of an experimental version that you can download (<a href="http://prdownload.berlios.de/gsdl-esdoc/gsdlremoto.pdf">En Español</a>).

This is our research version and is still incomplete; the production version (Greenstone 2) is recommended for almost all users (and is still being developed and improved). Greenstone 3 will serve existing collections without any change whatsoever, so there is no danger of becoming out-moded by continuing with Greenstone 2. <a href="http://www.greenstone.org/greenstone3.html">Greenstone 3 home page</a>.

113The Greenstone Librarian Interface (GLI),
114an easy-to-use frontend to Greenstone's collection-building
115functionality, has been extensively user tested and debugged.
116If you haven't already tried it, now is a great
117time to do so (and if you ran into problems before, please try this new version).
118Greenstone 2.50 also includes the new (and already very popular) PagedImgPlug plugin for
119processing sequences of page images, a new classifier that displays a
120collage of the images in a collection, provision for incremental updates
121of Greenstone in the future, and many other bug fixes and improvements.

125One of the trickier parts of using Greenstone is coming up with a
126configuration file for your collection. To help learn how to do it,
127several fully-documented example collections have been placed at <a

141The aim of the Greenstone software is to empower users, particularly in universities,
142libraries, and other public service institutions, to build their own
143digital libraries. Digital libraries are radically reforming how
144information is disseminated and acquired in UNESCO's partner communities
145and institutions in the fields of education, science and culture around the
146world, and particularly in developing countries. We hope that this
147software will encourage the effective deployment of digital libraries to
148share information and place it in the public domain. Further information
149can be found in the book <a href="http://www.nzdl.org/howto">How to build a
150digital library</a>, authored by two of the group's members.

849Alternatively, if your department/organization is willing to organise and fund a Greenstone workshop in your area, we might be able to run it (depending on what other commitments we have). We would require our air travel and basic accomodation to be paid for, and if you're feeling generous, a donation towards our research costs would be appreciated.
