Hi Claire,

I don't think there is any way of assigning the filename automatically
to dc.Identifier. Have you tried using "-OIDtype dirname"? This will use
the path of the source file as the identifier. If this doesn't do quite
what you want you can change how the "dirname" option works by editing a
small bit of code in the set_OID function in Greenstone's perllib/
