MLA Training on GSDL

25 Apr

The Maldives Library Association has conducted a training on Greenstone Digital Library Software. This software is open source and is ideal for the creation of full-text searchable, indexed collections of documents. As such, the software can be utilized for archiving purposes in addition to the creation of online digital library collections.
