Your metadata is likely to be in the file GSDLHOME/collect/collectionname/import/metadata.xml though you may have it in some other file but probably in the import directory. You can run a script against the metadata file(s) in the import directory, reimport the data and rebuild the collection.

Subject: [greenstone-devel] reformat dates in a collection?
The date stamps in our collections are incorrectly formatted for OAI.
Since there are thousands of items, changing them all by hand would be a
lot of work. In most cases, we need to change MM/DD/YYYY to YYYY-MM-DD,
regardless of the specific year, month and day.
Is there some way to export the metadata in a format that can be changed
with a script and then reloaded into the collection?
Changing the metadata directly with set_metadata.pl won't work because
it changes specific values, e.g. 01/02/1995 to 1995-01-02.
Is there some other way?
