Open Source Collection Software

Have you heard of Greenstone Digital Library Software? Well, thanks to Micah Vandegrift’s excellent presentation on Floridian subcultures I now know more about what Greenstone can do.

Did I mention this is multi-lingual, open source software designed to empower users in a wide variety of locals and situations to display online artifacts? The site is replete with tutorials and information. I cannot wait to download the Mac copy and start a collection over winter break.

Have you used Greenstone? Let me know what you think. I am excited about the possibilities.
