Hi Jim,

Great to see your collection up and running -- it looks like a very
useful resource. I hope you didn't have too many problems with Greenstone!

Could we please add your site to our examples page
( We would
need a short description of your site, similar to the first paragraph of
your e-mail.

All the best,
