Subject [greenstone-users] New to Greenstone and need help
I am hoping that I am not in over my head and will be able to figure all of
this out. Greenstone has been downloaded and installed on our library's
server. We would like to convert our current digitized collection residing at
http://www.anniston.lib.al.us/archive and use greenstone instead of the
cumbersome system we currently have. However, we want to keep the same
hierarchy to the collection. Other than the basic .html pages we currently
have that introduce the collections, the actual collection is in .jpg format.
I am trying to understand the documentation in regards to .jpg files. The
greenstone software resides on a Unix machine. The image files we have
created in our current collection do not include metadata (I know, a failing
on our part but we are a small library with limited resources so we're doing
the best we can just to make our archives available). So, since I am not
importing any metadata as such do I still need the image plugin? I would
really like our collection to look like the Greenstone example Chopin
collection so they can flip through the images within a subcollection.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
