       ScrollKeeper  -  An  open  document  cataloging and metadata management


       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, subject,
       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 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,
       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 registers it with ScrollKeeper.  It also
       removes 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.
