Thanks for the reply Joel.

I guess I should have explained that I was hoping to use the GLI remote
client for data entry. It is good in that there is a drop down list of
terms that have been entered for each field, as this helps with
consistency for entry with subject headings etc.

I was wondering if it would work to have several people using the GLI
for additions only, and rebuild the collection at the end of the day?
The documentation says not to do this,
greenstone.html) because work may be lost, but I thought that if files
were being added to the import directory and then saved, that it could
be okay?

Thank you

Dear Claire,
You can copy the collection directory from
Greenstonecollect]collection nameimport and just add the files into
the collection built in your computer by the metadata will be added to
the actual element when you copy and as you have said you are using a
dummy document it would not take much space and you can assign a unique
number for dummy document by right clicking on the collection window.
Once you have done with all your data entry then you can build your
collection or you can just incremental build.
