Hi Renate

Here is an answer sent recently (by Michale) to a similar question on
the developers list.

This is typically achieved by inventing a new CGI argument, and
displaying either the metadata or the text in the format statement
depending on the value of the argument.

A good example of this being done is in the documented "Bibliography
collection" at
http://puka.cs.waikato.ac.nz/cgi-bin/library?a=p&p=about&c=cltbib-e. If
you view a record, there is a "Show BibTex Record" link at the bottom
that switches between two views of the document. This is done with a
"showrecord" CGI argument, and if you look at the collect.cfg file for
this collection you'll see the {If} statement in format DocumentText
that looks at "_cgiargshowrecord_" and displays different content
accordingly.

Regards,
Katherine
