Dear Amr and others,

There is now a Greenstone blog in Arabic at
http://arabicgsdlblog.blogspot.com/ (also referenced on the
Greenstone homepage). A complete Arabic interface is incorporated
into Greenstone. Examples of collections created with this interface
can be found in the links for Sudanese Association of Libraries and
Information (SALI) Digital Library on the Greenstone examples page
(http://www.greenstone.org/examples#sali-digital-library).

Unfortunately, we do not have a good idea of how many users there are
of the Arabic version of Greenstone, or which countries they are from.

I would like to present Kamal Salih Mustafa Khalafala at Institute of
Environmental Studies Library, University of Khartoum who is
coordinating the Arabic translation and the Arabic Greenstone blog.
Potential and actual users of the Arabic interface are invited to
make themselves known to Kamal who will be liaising with the
Greenstone team on user needs and on how Arabic users can be better
supported, perhaps through an Arabic user group.

Best regards, John Rose, Research
Associate, University of Waikato

P.S. It would be helpful to our efforts to improve access of users in
developing countries to Greenstone if contributors to the Greenstone
lists systematically identified their country of residence and if
appropriate their institution.
