Hello Mauricio,

The bad news is that we don't really support the Organizer, as it is not
software that we developed. The good news is that if you send us a copy
of the collect.cfg file produced by the Organizer, and possibly an
example metadata.xml, showing some typical metadata, from within your
import folder, we'll try to figure out how to combine the collections to
produce a collection with the search/browse methods you want.

May I suggest that you try using a new tool available with Greenstone
2.40a called the Greenstone Librarian Interface (GLI). This provides a
gui environment for building collections and greatly simplifies the task
of assigning hierarchy based metadata.

Hear from you soon,
