Dear Richard,

This is extremely helpful. By the way, I designed the interface at
unido.org/library using Koha with the help of the nice folks from NZ at
Katipo (Rachel).

I am having trouble finding a greenstone site with the mgpp (whatever
that is) interface that allows searching on metadata fields. Can you
provide?
Also, are the only greenstone sites those listed on their homepage?

Regards,

emil

Hi Emil,

For all greenstone collections using the default interface: from the
preferences page (click the preferences button to get there) choose
"advanced query mode" for boolean searching.

For greenstone collections built with the mgpp indexing software (as
opposed to mg) an advanced form search is available that allows
searching on metadata fields.

As for date range searching, there is a feature for searching by a
range
of years. If you add the following line to a greenstone collection's
collect.cfg file:

format Queryinterface Datesearch

The search interface will display a facility for date range searching
on
the "Date" metadata item.

hope that was helpful,

Richard
