Subject [greenstone-users] Displaying multiple metadata values individually?
Hi everyone,

I am fairly new to the Greenstone community, so I do not know whether
this question has been asked before... (although I did some extensive
research on the postings in the mailing list). I am in the process of
constructing my first Greenstone demo collection. At the moment I am
trying to figure out some customizing features of the software and ran
across the following problem:

I assigned multiple values to various metadata fields, as for instance
"dc.creator". Now I found out from the FAQ section that it is possible
to display the first entry using just [dc.creator] or all of them using
[(sibling(All):dc.creator]. I wonder whether it is possible to display
all of them individually. The reason for me wanting to do this is the

In my collection I would like to display a bibliographical record of
each document first, in which metadata elements hyperlinked.
It should be possible to initiate a search for other documents of a
specific author, by just clicking on the authors name, that is displayed
in the bibliographical record. An example is for this is given below

*Creator:* E. Kerrigan
A. Bemporad
D. Mignone
M. Morari
J. Maciejowski

*Rights:* Public

Does anyone know a solution to my problem (basically how to access
metadata field individually)?

Thanks in advance and keep up the outstanding development of Greenstone :-),
