Hello Yan,

If your version of Greenstone is recent enough, it will include the
Librarian Interface. This is a java based gui application which is used
to design and create Greenstone collections. It comes with the ability
of loading one of several different metadata 'sets' including the Dublin
Core metadata set. Assuming you are starting a new collection you can
choose to use the Dublin Core metadata set. Then you can assign values
to the Dublin Core metadata elements and design browsable structures on
these Elements.

However if you already have a collection with Dublin Core metadata
assigned, and you are asking how to alter the collect.cfg file to show
browsable indexes on elements other than the default 'Title" and
"Source", then can I recommend reading chapters 1 & 2 of the Greenstone
Developers Manual available from:

Good Luck,
