SCROLLKEEPER(7)	       Miscellaneous Information Manual	       SCROLLKEEPER(7)

NAME
       ScrollKeeper - An open document cataloging and metadata management sys-
       tem.

DESCRIPTION
       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  at-
       tributes	of the documents such as their language, format, subject, ver-
       sion, 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 applications install documentation,  the	 documentation
       is  registered  with ScrollKeeper.  Any ScrollKeeper-aware help browser
       on the system can then access this information.	In this	 way,  Scroll-
       Keeper is a compatibility layer which allows any	help browser to	inter-
       face to all the documentation on	a system, provided the	package	 which
       ships  the  documentation  registers it with ScrollKeeper.  It also re-
       moves much of the burden	from application packagers  and	 help  browser
       developers  by  providing  a standard set of tools and by doing much of
       the work	inside of ScrollKeeper.
