Dear Emmanuel and Sugumaran,

Your two questions are similar, relating to how
to create a Greenstone library from a CDS/ISIS
database, incorporating the original full-text
documents referenced in that bibliographic database.

The procedure is simple and called "exploding".
You simply drag your CDS/ISIS database and field
definition table (.mst, .xrf, .fdt) into the
Collection pane of the Gather view and right
click on the .mst file. Select the explode option
and indicate in the "document_field" parameter
the CDS/ISIS field containing the path or url
(internal or external) to the associated
document. This will generate a collection in
which the associated documents are the library
collection documments and the CDS/ISIS metadata
are linked to the correct documents. Details can
be found in the basic guide of K. Rajasekharan
and K.M. Nafala
(http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/images/e/e9/WINISIS_to_GSDL_Guide.pdf)
or in the full CDS/ISIS to Greenstone guide
(http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/gsdoc/others/CDS-ISIS_to_DL.doc)
[Both of these refer to version 2.72, if there
are inconsistencies with more recent versions please come back to this list].

The associated documents can be of any type
handled by Greenstone (.pdf, .doc, .ppt., etc.).
Nothing has to be done within the documents themselves to import them.

In Emmanuel's case, it will probably not be
possible to build the collection in GLI for
28,000 documents. The command line should be used
as explained in chapter 4 of the CDS/ISIS to Greenstone guide.

Reminding Sugumaran that there is a South Asian
support group and discussion list at
http://greenstonesupport.iimk.ac.in which
includes several experts with experience in importing CDS/ISIS databases.

Best regards, John Rose of Greenstone Team
