Hi Jean,

You type in your first metadata item and simply press enter, and a new one appears for you to type in. If you have an existing metadata item, for example dls.subject and keyword, place the cursor at the end of the entry for this, and press enter.

With Greenstone, there are two ways of approaching adding multiple values to a metadata item. Lets say we have an article about orange farming, and we want to give it the subjects "oranges" and "farming". We can add to the subject metadata field: "oranges farming" separated by a space, and when users search on that word on the subject field in the resulting collection, searching for both "oranges" and "farming" will return the relevant document.

subject: oranges farming

Alternatively we can do it as I described in the first paragraph, giving us two distinct metadata entries for subject.

subject: oranges
subject: farming

This will also result in a search on the subject field returning the relavent document in both cases.

Hope this helps,

I’ve discovered Greenstone recently.
I don’t know how to put several keywords in a metadata field with GLI.
I thought a separator was needed.
Can anyone help me ?
Thank you.
