Subject [greenstone-users] RE: GSDL

I am in the process of learning the GSDL software. I
underwent a two day training programme on Digital
Library. With some background knowledge gained in
that, I have started learning.

As a first step, I succeeded in creating a small
digital collection (5 documents; 4 pdf and 1 doc.)
using the default configuration file (collect.cfg). I
got the default search indexes for text, title and
filenames and browing indexes for title and filenames.

Next, I am trying to create a Browsing and Search
index for Authors and facing problem. Please tell me
the steps for this. I am attaching below my
Collect.cfg and metadata.xml files. Kindly correct
them and send back. In addition to these two files,
anythingelse has to be done. Once I succeed in this,
I shall move to the next and so on.

I have installed [Local Library] 2.540a version.

Awaiting a reply to proceed further
