|Dear List members and Greenstone Developers,
I am serving the UN House Common Premise in Pakistan as the UN
Librarian. I have developed the United Nations Common Library from
scratch with a website at ( http://www.un.org.pk/library/index.htm )
containing an Online Web Catalogue and Online Reference Services and
My main assignment for the UN Common House in Pakistanis, is to develop
a Digital Library of the United Nations Digital Documents created by

I am looking for some formal training available for learning the
application of Greenstone Software. I had come to know about a 3-day
"UNESCO Asian Regional Training Programme on Greenstone Digital Library
Software", at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India (7 May

I had written on the given e-mail addresses many times without success.
I would be much obliged if somebody could tell me about training
opportunities for the Greenstone Digital Library Software, where I can
learn about vaious ways of installation and configuration and collection
development. Learning from the manuals is too cumbersome for me and also
these are too technical to understand.
