ScrollKeeper - An open document cataloging and metadata management system.
ScrollKeeper is a system for managing document metadata. Its primary function is to act
as a card catalog for documents, keeping track of what documents are available, where they
can be found, and various attributes of the documents such as their language, format, sub-
ject, version, and position in a contents list. It also manages other metadata such as
ScrollKeeper acts as a middle layer between applications and help browsers. When applica-
tions install documentation, the documentation is registered with ScrollKeeper. Any
ScrollKeeper-aware help browser on the system can then access this information. In this
way, ScrollKeeper is a compatibility layer which allows any help browser to interface to
all the documentation on a system, provided the package which ships the documentation reg-
isters it with ScrollKeeper. It also removes much of the burden from application pack-
agers and help browser developers by providing a standard set of tools and by doing much
of the work inside of ScrollKeeper.
