                Del Blog de Greenstone: 


                In 2008, the University of Waikato a received a Grant from the 
Mellon Foundation to promote contributions to the Greenstone Digital Library 
suite which provide significant benefits to higher education, libraries, 
museums, arts, or nature conservation. The University is using the award to 
support the Greenstone community of developers and users, particularly in 
developing countries (see the announcement 
<http://www.greenstone.org/blog#announcement> below).

                The first grant of US$ 8,000 has been awarded to Prodigio 
Consultores <http://www.prodigioconsultores.com/>  in Santiago, Chile, to 
coordinate the launching of a sustainable, voluntary, not-for-profit Greenstone 
support network for Latin America. In carrying out this work by end June 2010, 
Prodigio will:

                *       identify national coordinators for focal points for 
promotion of the Greenstone Digital Library software in at least 3 Latin 
American countries; 
                *       establish contracts engaging each national coordinator 
to organise a national Greenstone training workshop, provide technical support 
services for one year and to ensure development and public access to at least 
one new Greenstone digital library application; 
                *       create a regional coordinating and evaluation committee 
composed of representatives of the national coordinators and other Latin 
American experts; 
                *       establish a collaborative portal to inform and 
facilitate cooperation among Greenstone users in Latin America (including 
announcement of training events, news about and links to Greenstone collections 
in the region, FAQs, and documentation on Greenstone in regional languages); 
                *       provide technical assistance to the work of the 
national coordinators; 
                *       coordinate the work of the regional coordinating and 
evaluation committee with a view to formally establishing and consolidating the 
regional support network. 

                Additional support has been provided to enable Diego Spano, 
Director of Projects at Prodigio, to undertake a visit to Waikato to 
familiarise himself with the latest Greenstone developments and to discuss the 
development of the Latin American network.

                Although Prodigio is a commercial company, it will be 
undertaking this activity on a totally not-for-profit basis. This work will 
build on the Spanish-language Greenstone discussion list 
<http://www.freelists.org/list/greenstone_es>  which has been moderated by 
Prodigio for the past year. Further information can be obtained from Diego 
Spano <mailto:diegospano@xxxxxxxxx> .

                The Latin American network will join the Greenstone support 
networks in South Asia <http://greenstonesupport.iimk.ac.in/>  (operating since 
2006) and Southern Africa 
<http://www.eifl.net/cps/sections/services/eifl-foss/greenstone>  (operating 
since 2007).

                We hope to award the remaining Greenstone-Mellon grants by June 
2009 in order to meet the deadlines for the use of these funds. Interested 
parties are referred to the grant announcement:
