I recommend that you download the latest version of greenstone (2.40)
( - this includes the
librarian interface - a tool for building collections, including functions
such as adding metadata to documents and creating subject hierarchies etc.

the alternative is to create metadata.xml files by hand - these list
metadata for documents or groups of documents. these are described in
chapter 2 of the greenstone developers guide
