I've figured out (on my own) the format of bib1_to_dces.cfg and
that I have to use mgpp to map query attributes to specific

Going the other way (mapping metadata elements to MARC fields)
I am zeroing in on d2m4gs.h ...but I can't find that header
file. Anyone want to point me to the right place so I can
look at modifying it for our metadata element names? Please?

thanks, -Don
