14<p>Greenstone can export the contents and/or metadata of a collection to several standard formats, including METS, DSpace and MARCXML.</p>
15
16<p>To export a collection, open the "File" menu and choose "Export...". You can choose which format to export to by selecting it in the "Export to" drop-down list. Specify a name for the directory where you want to put the exported files&mdash;the files will end up in &lt;path to greenstone&gt;/tmp/exported_xxx, where xxx is the name you specified. Select one collection in the list of available collections, then click "Export collection".</p>
17
18<p>There are other options specific to the various formats. You can specify XSLT files which will be applied to the resulting XML document(s) in order to customize the output format. Exporting to MARCXML uses a mapping file to map Greenstone metadata to MARC fields. The default mapping file maps only Dublin Core metadata. You can specify a custom mapping file to be used instead.</p>
