Subject [greenstone-users] Displaying linked images as thumbnails
 My library has a number of CDS/ISIS databases which we have been able to bring into Greenstone using the explode metadata option. After searching, we would like the results to display thumbnails of images that are linked to URL's in the Identifier field together with the rest of the metadata.

So far, we have found that this display can be done only  when images are imported first and metadata added to the record in Greenstone database. For example in the Simple image demo collection.

However I noted that in the OAI demo collection that the OAI Plugin provides for linking to the image   which Screenicon would display as a thumbnail  along with the metadata.

 Is this something that is available for building collections after exploding CDS/ISIS databases?

We would appreciate any help.
