Subject: regarding metadata...
We have installed Greenstone in our office. We intend to present a new
interface for uploading source data while building a collection. We aim to
replace the source data page by our page. Our page asks the collector to
explicitly specify the metadata about the document.
We would like to know how to replace source data page by our upload
page. What are the files which have to be modified and how? Also , how to
put the metadata gathered from our page into the gsdl metadata file?
Thanks in advance.
