METS Navigator

The Indiana University Digital Library Program has announced the release of METS Navigator 1.0 Beta, a METS-based system for displaying and navigating sets of page images or other multi-part digital objects.
Using the information in the METS structMap elements, METS Navigator builds a hierarchical menu that allows users to navigate to specific sections of a document, such as title page, specific chapters, illustrations, etc. METS Navigator also allows simple navigation to the next, previous, first, and last page image or component part of a digital object.

METS Navigator is built using Java and open source Web technologies, including the Apache Struts Web Application Framework, the Castor Java & XML Data Binding libraries, and Ant, and runs under a Web application server such as Apache Tomcat.
