As you are aware, Greenstone Digital Library Software (GSDL), a free
software developed by the University of Waikato, New Zealand, is a major
Digital Library software in South Asian region. Different
institutions/individuals are already developing Interfaces in some of the
Indian languages. With a view to promoting further work on and practical
applications of the software a survey of the institutions and individuals
in SAARC region who are using or intending to use or have attended
workshop(s) on the software or otherwise interested in GSDL, is being
undertaken. This survey is mainly supported by the International
Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada. UNESCO, Paris and eIFL,
Netherlands, are also promoting this software. The results of the survey
will be made available to others also, on request.
A survey instrument (for individuals and institutions) is made available
