Greenstone is a software for creating and maintaining distributed digital library collections. It provides a sophisticated federation mechanism for the collections.In order to support alerting notification about changes in the distributed collections, we propose a distributed directory service for the management of the distributed Greenstone installations. The Greenstone directory service (GDS) acts on top of the distributed Greenstone structure for the management of collections. This paper describes both, the initial distributed Greenstone structure and the distributed directory service.
