Abstract

Usability in digital libraries is often focussed on end-user interactions such as searching and browsing. In this chapter, we describe usability issues that face the digital librarian in creating and maintaining a digital library. The Greenstone digital library software suite is used as an example to examine how to support digital librarians in their work.
