First I would like to acknowledge that this answer is provided by a librarian at the Helsinki City Library (in Finland). We do not have specialized information on the international baccalaureate curriculum, school libraries or software for school libraries. We can therefore only give recommendations for where you can find the exact answers.
1. To acquire an accurate answer to your first question I suggest that you visit the International Baccalaureate website (http://www.ibo.org/). You can e.g. log on to their Online curriculum centre (http://occ.ibo.org/ibis/occ/guest/home.cfm) or send in your question through their information service, http://www.ibo.org/contact/.
2. For information on the most popular school library software I suggest that you visit the ENSIL - European Network for School Libraries and Information Literacy website (http://www.ensil-online.org/). Here you can find resources and contacts to others working in the school library field. If you are not located in Europe, you can find links to other school library organizations through this same website. Hopefully the link “Information technology in Schools Libraries” will give you the information you need.
3. Concerning the greenstone software I recommend that you contact the provider directly (http://www.greenstone.org/). Through this article in Wikipedia you can find links to other sites with information on greenstone software: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenstone_(software).
4. Bar code readers are accessories that can be obtained from different manufacturers and the “code tags” that are fixed on library material are provided by other manufacturers. Usually these tags can be obtained through the library software provider.
