Subject [greenstone-users] Greenstone - METS - MODS
Good day to everyone!!!
we have developed a collection on the Greenstone s/w
using the Dublin
Core metadata schema. The collection includes
digitized music manuscripts of the late barok period.
You can access it at:
http://dlib.ionio.gr/gsdl/cgi-bin/library
we would like to extend the collection metadata so
that to provide
better search services. So our problem is:
a. to change the metadata of each page from Dublin
Core to MODS so a question is how we can install the
MODS XML schema so that to be offered by Greenstone?
b. furthermore our manuscripts are organized in
divisions, sections,
exercises, etc. we could represent this hierarchical
organization by a wrapping metadata standard such as
METS. Also METS standard would improve the search
services of our collection. so the question is again
how we can install the METS XML schema so that to be
offered by Greenstone.

The XML files are not documents of our collection.
the documents of our collection are images of music
manuscripts
. Our problem is to import the METS and MODS XML
schemata so that to be offered as metadata for our
collection. We would like to extend the metadata of
our collection by using the METS and MODS XML
schemata. The question is how we could import these
schemata in the Greenstone system.
