       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
       document indices.

       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.

       The ScrollKeeper web pages can be found	at  http://scrollkeeper.sourceforge.net  and  the
       mailing	list  can  be  found at http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/scrollkeeper-
