Hi Tamara,

We have had a few students and lecturers look at using Greenstone with
small-screen devices in the past. Search for "Greenstone small screen
devices" on Google and you'll locate a few papers about this, for
example http://www.cs.waikato.ac.nz/~mattj/SmallScreenDLsFinal.pdf.
Usually people have had to customise Greenstone to format its output
better for small screens, but with the recent CSS changes this might not
be as important.

There is some documentation about controlling access to Greenstone
collections in the "formatting and authentication" collection at
http://www.nzdl.org/cgi-bin/library?a=p&p=about&c=authen-e

Regards,

Michael
