Am pleased to introduce myself to you all. Am Geoffrey Salanje who will be
chairing/coordinating discussions on the network. Am currently a College
Librarian at Bunda College - one of the consituent college libraries of the
University of Malawi; and a national coordinator for the Malawi Greenstone
Centre. Apologies for not coming to you earlier - I had some personal
problems to sort out!
First thing first, may each one of you briefly introduce yourself once again
and what you have doneat your institution in so far as ditization is
concerned. You may briefly mention your future plans, if any. This will be
an indication to me that you have received this email! I expect this to run
up to Friday this week, then we can switch on to a substantive subject of
discussion. In the world of democracy, anybody on the listserv is free to
suggest a topic! By the way Malawians will go to the polls tomorrow Tuesday
to elect a new government - as such Tuesday will be public holiday!

> Dear all
> a few months back we started exchanging stories and screenshots on
> this list to share our work on Greenstone digital collections.
> We have been seeing a lot of interesting first steps and small scale
> trials with closed access for the time being.
> And a few global access ones.
> It is all in the email list archive  but from today we also have
> our "Examples of Greenstone in use" web pages !
> You will find it here:
> For starters it has all the screenshots and information you have been
> sending to the list, with material organised by country.
> Next up are countries and colleagues in our Support Network that we
> know have Greenstone collections on their library websites.
> But let me stress again: these new web pages are an informal
> bulletin board for all of us to share any story or snapshot of our
> Greenstone work - or pic's with some info of your scanning
> (digitising) work or anything else related to making collections
> searchable & browsable with Greenstone.
> Some of you I promised this addition to the SA Greenstone eIFL-FOSS
> website long ago.
> Yes: it has taken some time and I am very happy to introduce Misheck
> Nyaluso who recently offered to help with the web site.
> Thanks Misheck ! One other much needed extension for example will be
> information pages for each of the National Centres in the network.
> And Jeff Chivheya (February 28 message ) had a suggestion for the
> Support Documentation  page: to compile some more of our own
> southern African unique FAQs.
> Anybody ideas or comments on the Example pages ? Other suggestions ?
> Share it here on the list.
> And while there at the SA Greenstone website: check out more new
> information like the "Call for additional National Centres" and the
> folder with all the 2009 - 2010 Project documents.
