Our Misssion

The Greenstone Digital Library Software ( is an Open Source package for building and distributing Digital Libraries, which has been developed by the University of Waikato, New Zealand.

Greenstone is a powerful and flexible software which is of great potential interest to libraries and information centers and other public and private institutions in South Asia.

This Website is organized by the CDDL at IIM Kozhikode in collaboration with the Greenstone development team in order to ensure effective promotion and support for Greenstone in South Asia.

Service Approach

Those wishing to receive the E-list should send their Name, Name of their Institution and Email address to Ms.T. Sunitha - (who should also be contacted on questions and its procedures). The E-list archive will soon be available on this site.

The Indian Network extends online guidance and support for setting up Greenstone based DLs voluntarily. All members of the E-List are invited to actively participate in the discussions. In order to facilitate the list, an initial core of Greenstone support specialists has been formed to ensure that all queries are answered, and will be extended as other specialists join..

The South Asian Support Team will reply to queries from South Asia on the main Greenstone discussion lists and post them to both the originating list and the South Asian E-List. Questions originating on the South Asian E-List will be answered on this list and, if of general interest, copied to the appropriate Greenstone main list.
