Hi David

Are you talking about browsing classifiers? Eg a subjects button on the
navigation bar, which gives you a top level of basic subjects, which can
be further exanded to more specific subjects?

You can do this in greenstone, see e.g.
http://www.nzdl.org/cgi-bin/library?a=d&cl=CL1&c=hdl
The subjects classifier for the humanity development library.

This can be achieved by using the Hierarchy classifier with either
hierarchical metadata (e.g. Trucks|Trucks military|Trucks military -
amphibious)
or using a supplementary file containing the hierarchy. (see section 2.2
of developers guide)

Regards,
Katherine
