Subject [greenstone-users] Transferring metadata
Hi there list,
What is the possibility (or what are the options) for someone who might
want to transfer, say, a photoarchive system already with about 15,000
items in it to Greenstone - without retyping all the metadata. In other
words, is it possible to take a set (doesn't happen to be DC, it's
idiosyncractic but a system nevertheless) of metadata and transfer it
across to a Greenstone collection somehow? I am trying to offer someone
a way forward, but if it meant we had to retype all the metadata then he
may baulk at the idea, understandably.
