Thank you Diego. I was able to get this to work! I have a follow-up question: Is
there a way to sort by the date they were added to the library rather than by

You can add a classifier to the collection that shows the last n documents (or
the documents added since specific date).

Try this:

classify RecentDocumentsList -include_most_recently_added 10 -sort dc.Title
-no_metadata_formatting -buttonname "Last 10 documents"

Hope this helps.

I'd like to piggy-back on this question, if you don't mind...

Does Greenstone have a way to show on the web interface which documents were
most recently added? Kind of like a "What's New" list. If so, how might I
accomplish that?

Thank you,

To have cover images you have to put a ?jpg? file next to the document file
and with the same name. Suppose you have book.pdf in import folder. If you
place there a file named book.jpg (same filename, different extension) then
GS will assume that that jpg is the cover image for book.pdf file. That?s

If you want to modify the format statements to show the cover image, you
have to place [DocImage] wherever you want the image to be showed.
