Subject [greenstone-devel] GLI and DC metadata identifier problem
Hi,

The DC metadata set has an attributes for each element;
In the case of the 'subject' element the identifier element value is
'Subject and Keywords'. The spaces in this value cause the GLI/Greenstone
to fail in building/delivering collections which use these fields. (See
some collect cfg text below)

While I am not an expert on DC but I believe the answer is to change the
identifier values to their element names instead of the 'Label' as is
currently being used with the few offending elements. (And I don't fancy
trying to change the GLI/Greenstone)

As I said before- I am not a DC expert so I am not sure this is the right
solution. Am I the only one with this problem? Please let me know what you
think - I can send my modified metadata set to anyone who is interested.

None of the sources I was able to find used the label as the element
identifier.
