This paper describes a ‘cultural probe’ study underpinning a user-centered re-design of the Greenstone digital library system's collection creation sub-system (the Greenstone ‘Librarian’), with a focus on assisting seniors in developing Greenstone collections representing their personal history. The results of this investigation include a customized metadata set for these users' collections, and a ‘personal timeline’ browsing structure.
