We are hosting 12,895 images w/ metadata on our server. Our largest
collection has 11,181 items. Seems to do just fine. :D

Hi Cristian,

The short answer is that we are working hard to remove any limitation=
on

the number of documents which can be stored in a greenstone collectio=
n,=20
and with good success; the "Archivo Digital" collection has a whoppin=
g=20
17,655 documents indexed.

The main limitation seems to be on the amount of text information=
=20
(measured in bytes) rather than the number of documents. See this wik=
i=20
page for details:

Are_there_any_limits_to_the_size of collections.3F

If you have problems with building large collections, the mailing-lis=
t=20
