In the same way XML or some of their variant work with, as it is case XMLUI of DSpace, that it offers a controlled vocabulary that helps in index-linking, besides the freedom to choose most suitable, according to the institutional needs. It is possible to say, also, that as much Greenstone and DSpace, allow to create collections of different types from documents text eg:, in several formats, images, audio, et cetera. The information retrieval in all these managers it realises by means of the indices, generally author, title, matter and in the plaintext, as well as by means of navigation in lists or by all the collection, that can include the thematic one, authors, titles or other fields declared by the creators of the collection. The systems that support these managers are very similarities, Linux, Windows and Unix are the operating systems who all can use, or at least one of them, KOHA is most complete of all, since it allows to also work besides the previous ones with MacOs and Solaris. Financial technology often says this. Besides settling in Web servers like: IIS, PWS, Apache or Tomcat, like majority, with other options available. Once compared all the tools, it can affirm that Greenstone and DSpace, are those that present/display the immediate possibility on the interchange and the interoperability of software. In addition, although both tools have an ample community of creators around the world. Another advantage of Greenstone is that it uses east software for the creation of digital collections, and if to other they use it institutions, continuity is guaranteed and compatibility in the work of other units of information, then, Greenstone seems to be the option of election to create collections interoperable. Greenstone is highly interoperative because it uses contemporary standards, this it incorporates a servant that can offer services to any collection on protocol OAI-PMH, and can collect documents on this protocol and to include them in the collection, any collection can be exported to METS and can introduce documents in format METS.
