jLibrary user interface is internationalized both in English, Spanish,

another language (only one resources file has to bee changed) contact with
us - well, you can also contact if you want to help with the project. :-)
jLibrary 1.0 is the fruit of many months of hard work. Is an Open Source
Document Management System released with a BSD license, something that was
needed by the IT industry. This is a very big project with a small team,
so we are open to ideas, contributions, support, donations, etc. You can
contact directly with me to make business or with the jLibrary developers
mailing lists at sourceforge.
We really hope that you like jLibrary.
