Hi Anson,

Judging from the lack of replies it seems that no-one has done much like
this, so you'll probably need to customise the Greenstone code to add
the functionality you need. There is one Greenstone collection I know of
(http://clients.stephenroke.com) that has "shopping cart"-type
functionality, and clients can log in and e-mail their "order" to the
web site owner. Typically these types of functionality require new C++
and Javascript code.

Regards,

Michael
