Subject [greenstone-users] Alpha list at the second level
Dear List,

After entering so many records into the GLI we notice that in our
"Location" browse section, the number of documents within a "bookshelf" is
quite large. Is it possible to have the documents group together in
sections by alpha, such as our "Name" browse section? In other words, we
would like the page to display like this:

Island of Molokai:

Kalaupapa: (132 Items)

Abc-Def Ghi-Klm Nop-Qrs...etc.

Abc, John
Abcd, Jane
Abce, Mary
etc.


So instead of having ALL 132 documents be listed when someone clicks on
"Kalaupapa" - the person would see only the first 50 documents, and would
go to the next alpha section to view the others, and so forth.

Right now we are using the "GenericList" classifier. We would like to use
this type of browsing classifier because we have found that this works in
terms of the way the other information displays, which makes it easier
when they are "browsing" because it can help to narrow their search.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Ju Sun
