Hi Azael

Sorry about the slow reply to this. Are you still wanting information
about this?

Greenstone currently comes with z39.50 client software, but not server.
To create a system that links several greenstone installations, you
would need to have greenstone running as a z39.50 server. We had a
student working on a server module here a year or two ago, but it never
got finished properly. If you need it, we could give you what we have.
The person to contact about this is David Bainbridge
(davidb@cs.waikato.ac.nz).

We have also had some staff and students working on using Greenstone on
small screen devices. You should contact Dynal Patel
(dpatel@cs.uct.ac.za) about this.

Regards,
Katherine Don
