The "Organization" and "Subject" browsing structures in the demo
collection are created with Hierarchy classifiers (see the demo
collection's collect.cfg file). With Hierarchy classifiers you need to
specify a text file (like org.txt and sub.txt) that contains the
hierarchy information in a specific format. This "hfile" format is
described in section 2.2 of the Greenstone Developer's Guide. To create
a browsing structure like the "Organization" and "Subject" hierarchy you
must create one of the hfiles and manually add metadata to metadata.xml
files before importing your documents.

Luckily, there is now a much easier way of doing this. This is to use
the Greenstone Librarian Interface program, which provides a graphical
interface to Greenstone's collection building functionality. This
program allows you to easily assign metadata and create browsing
structures, and generates the hfiles for the Hierarchy classifier for

To try out the Greenstone Librarian Interface, you should make sure you
have Greenstone v2.41. After installation on Windows, a shortcut to the
Librarian Interface will be added to your Start menu.
