Hi Don

The D2M package is in greenstone/packages/d2m. It maps dublin core to marc. Not sure which file you'll need to modify to change the mapping.

When you have figured everything out, it would be great if you could email the list what you were trying to do, and what you had to modify to achieve it, and we can add it to our wiki.

Going the other way (mapping metadata elements to MARC fields)
I am zeroing in on d2m4gs.h ...but I can't find that header
file.  Anyone want to point me to the right place so I can
look at modifying it for our metadata element names?  Please?

thanks, -Don

Does anybody know what Greenstone metadata fields (names) are
mapped to what USMARC tags for z3950server results?  Or, even
better, how to define such a mapping?

I am playing with the z3950server in GSDL 2.70w.  I'm pretty ignorant
about Z39.50 and MARC but it seems to be basically working:  I can
open a connection with my YAZ client, specify a collection as the
"base", and find items that are then shown as MARC records.

But the MARC record is pretty sparse...just title (245) and the
original import document name (786).  Is there somewhere that I can
map our metadata to MARC fields?  Is there a way to get a link to
the item in Greenstone included, in the 856 field perhaps?  When a
connection is made to the server, the log spits this out for each

Unable to find bib1->dublin core mapping for treasure
Looked for:

Is bib1_to_dces.cfg where I can map metadata to results fields
(seems backwards...I want to map dublin core->usmarc)?  Is there
an example bib1_to_dces.cfg file I can examine?

Going the other map query "attributes" to my metadata there a way to do that?  Is that what bib1_to_dces.cfg does?
The Z39.50 experts here ask me what attributes Greenstone's
z3950server that documented somewhere?
