Hi Rich

There is currently no way to make Greenstone do this for you. We have
thought that it might be a good idea to have metadata fields that have
restricted sets of values, which could then potentially be used in the
GLI when assigning metadata, and in the interface when searching.
However, this has not been implemented.

You may be able to achieve it using javascript but I'm not sure. If you
do come up with a solution, please let us know as we'd love to have it.

Cheers,
Katherine Don
