Dear Likedom,

CDS/ISIS stands for "Computerized Documentation System-Integrated Set for
Information Systems". If you have any collection/database (e.g. Book) in
ISIS you can drag following three files to your greenstone collection
(e.g. books).

bok.mst
bok.fdt
bok.xrf

The greenstone automatically will creat exp metadata/elements.

regards,
