    27 <h4>The Greenstone software</h4>
     27<h2>The Greenstone software</h2>
    29 <p> The Greenstone Digital Library software provides a new way of
    30 organizing information and making it available over the Internet.  A
    31 <i>collection</i> of information comprises several (typically several
    32 thousand, or even several million) <i>documents</i>, which share a uniform
    33 searching and browsing interface.  The collections in a library are
    34 organized in a different way--though they share a strong family
    35 resemblance.  Although primarily designed for access over the Web,
    36 Greenstone collections can be made available, in precisely the same form,
    37 on CD-ROM for standalone PCs.  Greenstone is open-source software,
    38 available under the terms of the Gnu public license.  Documentation is
    39 available in the form of <i><a
    40 href="">The Greenstone
    41 Digital Library Software</a></i> manual.
     30This page explains how to download and install the
     31<a href="_httppagex_(gsdl)">Greenstone Digital Library software</a>.
