Subject [greenstone-users] downloading metadata

I'm not sure I fully understand what downloading metadata (e.g. as
Z39.50 format) is meant to do. I experimented by downloading 5 files
- but is this meant for being able to automatically add metadata to
existing documents in a collection? In other words, is there a way
if I have 20 docs, to just download the metadata and import it for
each document? I'm not quite sure what I am to DO with the metadata
downloaded - other than "gather" it like other materials, and then
what? How do you associate that metadata with a particular document
in your collection?
