The Sudan Open Archive "is an expanding collection of documents covering all regions of Sudan. It has been developed by the Rift Valley Institute with support from UNICEF, UNEP and the Southern Sudan Centre for Census, Statistics and Evaluation. The Archive uses open-source Greenstone software, developed by DL Consulting. It can be accessed on computers running Windows, Unix or Mac OS/X. It is available online and also as a freestanding disk-based application on CD and DVD. The work of the Archive is guided by an international advisory board composed of area specialists and technical experts." [1]
