I don’t speak officially for
greenstone, but I am sure you can copy the libraries to a central server. If
the student creates a library on his/her own machine, All you need to do is
copy the folder for the collection into the server’s “collect”
directory. The only difficulty is if the students make changes to the global macros
or configuration, It might pay to encourage students to make all their
customisations at the collection level…

Subject: [greenstone-users] remote
access to library system?
I am a
graduate library school student in Tucson
AZ. My instructor has had
the library software installed on a unix system in Tucson with internet access. His hope
is that each student can create a library on their home computer and eventually
be included in the unix version on the school's computer. Can the library
creation software be accessed remotely? If each student creates their own
library can we then export those files to the central library? Can each
student log in to the central server to upload their library?
I don't need an answer to each question, I am mainly trying to describe what we
are trying to do and find out the easiest way to do it. We want to
combine several student library files in one location so that all students can
view the libraries.
This is an online class and the students are spread all over
and at overseas locations so we are hopeful that tasks can be accomplished
remotely. However, I am in the same location as the server so I can perform
any tasks that need to be done on the server itself.
The students have already installed the software on their
own personal computers and are successfully creating their libraries.
Thank you very much for any assistance. It is greatly
appreciated. I have looked over the manuals and have not identified
information that answers this query.
