Subject [greenstone-users] Importing pdf and bibtex
Hi there,

I found this in the mailinglist archives from January:

In my ongoing project I'd like to go a bit further than Donald
Dollberg: I'd like to create a collection that makes fulltext search in those
pdf files possible and, of course, form search in the bibtex entries
as well.

I read the available docs about greenstone and I know how to build a
collection from bibtex bibliographies and how to build a pdf library.
I suppose I have to write a new import plugin to make a collection of
both? What would be the best (and probably shortest) approach? I'd
probably start converting the bibtex entries to xml metadata which
RecPlug can handle.

Thx for any hints.
