Sorry for the slow reply to your e-mails. Thanks for asking your question on the list, however, as it means others can benefit from the answers and offer their own suggestions.
I'm trying to build a GSDl collection from a cds/isis database based onIt looks like the link to this collection on the SADL mirror isn't quite right. Try:
Or, go to http://www.nzdl.org/nz and choose the ISIS collection.
The cause of this problem is that the ISIS collection is a MGPP collection, and form-based searching is provided. This means the search box is suppressed on the collection front page, and this requires the extra arguments to the link.
I'll fix the SADL mirror when I get a chance; thanks for pointing this out.
How should i go about in building a collection for the sample cds/isisOK, you're doing everything right. The problem is that the IsisGdl program we use expects the filename extensions to be lowercase (!). So, try renaming the files to CDS.mst and CDS.fdt, and see if you have more success.
I was hoping not to have to change the IsisGdl program, but this definitely needs fixing for the next release.
All the best,
