|Subject||Re: [greenstone-users] Metadata : which 'values' should be assigned tothe attributes of a new metadata set defined via GEMS ?|
>(I'm running Greenstone 2.70w on W-XP. Sorry for the basic questions, but I've searched in the doc and archives from this list for answers without any luck).
>2- what is the aim of each attribute? Some are obvious from their names (like 'datatype'), some are less (like 'identifier' or 'family');
Metadata sets: namespace
Everything else you can ignore.
>3- I suspect some attributes' values are determined (like 'datatype', which could get as values, 'text', 'image'... or 'doc', 'txt', 'pdf'...?); where do I find those values?
>4- I would be interested to define: a) compulsory elements, b) elements which are automatically defaulted to some values, c) definition of different types of elements (i.e.: date, integer, string, etc.)... is this possible with Greenstone?
