In this paper the authors have described, how digital library collections can be developed and customized with the most updated version of Greenstone Digital Library Software (GSDL). An experiment collection has been developed to demonstrate the various steps involved in the development of digital collection. The digital collection developed on GSDL has very effective full-text searching and metadata-based browsing facilities i.e. subject hierarchy, author search and so on. The entire process of developing digital collection in GSDL involves many steps such as, to assign metadata to each document or group of documents, designing the collection, document formats, searchable indexes, partition indexes, Browsing classifiers, and finally creating the collection. The present paper will prove an effective tool to LIS community in the development of digital collection on GSDL window platform.
