Subject [greenstone-users] MIDESS Project

We have just received some funding from the Joint Information Systems
Committee (JISC) in the UK to develop a digital repository for managing
images and multimedia materials. I'm undertaking a brief analysis of
the various digital repository packages around at the moment, and
wondered if anyone on the list would be able to answer the following
questions in relation to Greenstone:

- has anyone done any developments with web services or similar
technologies to enable the integration of greenstone collections within
a portal environment?
- is anyone aware of whether authentication to Greenstone could be
supported through use of an institutional LDAP server?
- is there any support for the OpenURL protocol?
- what support for digital preservation exists - eg: conformance to
OAIS, use of persistent URLs etc?

Many thanks,
