16th June 2003



Greenstone Software Project







The Saint Lucia National Commission for UNESCO is attempting to undertaken a major project aimed at the standardisation and digitalisation of the holdings of local Libraries, Archives and other Resource Centres in Saint Lucia.  The move towards digital storage of material and information is supposed to facilitate efforts at aquision, preservation and circulation of ?indigenous knowledge?, which includes a significant collection of audiovisual material, especially audio and video holdings. 


We therefore wish to enquire about the availability of the Greenstone Digital Library software and as well about the capabilities of software as it relates to the digital storage of audiovisual materials.


The National Commission is aware of the training exercises, on the use of the Greenstone software, currently being undertaken in the Asian region.  As such, Saint Lucia is anxious to benefit from these training programmes, and so we would appreciate information on how Saint Lucia, the OECS and the wider Caribbean region, can benefit from similar training.


We wish to convey our thanks to your for whatever support can be granted on these matters and we look forward to hearing from you.


Yours sincerely






Paule Turmel-John
