Hi Keiko,

The problem here is that the GLI does not work well with metadata.xml files
it has not created itself. All the metadata values that have been assigned
are stored in files in the collection's "metadata" folder -- and the
GLI uses these to display the metadata.

The good news is that the GLI metadata code is being rewritten to fix this
(and other problems). The next release of Greenstone (not sure when) will
contain this new code.

Until then, one way around this problem is to create a new collection in
the GLI, choose the Dublin Core metadata set, and drag the contents of the
old collection's "import" folder into the new collection. The metadata you
have specified in the metadata.xml file should come too.

All the best,
