I was looking up some things on the Waikato University web site today and saw this. A brief news article on the front page on the downloadable Greenstone digital library software developed there being used by various organizations around the world for things like aid and development work.
For a list of various projects and organizations using it go to the New Zealand Digital Library Project as well as Ian Witten’s paper “Examples of Practical Digital Libraries: Collections Built Internationally Using Greenstone.”
Greenstone can be downloaded from: www.greenstone.org
