Hi Stephen,

There is some brand-new functionality (that's not even in Greenstone
v2.62) that allows multiple people to collaborate on collections. This
is thanks to the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, who funded us
to develop this functionality.

The collections are kept on the server and users are able to edit them
remotely, using either a stand-alone version of the GLI or the GLI
applet. Only one person is allowed to have a collection open at a time,
however. Authentication is implemented so access to collections can be
restricted to certain users.

Download links and documentation are at

This functionality is pretty fresh so there are likely to be a few bugs
lurking around. Please report these so we can fix them before the
Greenstone v2.63 release at the start of next year.

Hope this suits your needs,

All the best,
