    2020<p>When you add a file, the Librarian Interface searches through the source folders for auxiliary files containing metadata previously assigned to the added file and, if it finds one, begins to import this metadata.  As the operation proceeds, you may be prompted (perhaps several times) for extra information to match the imported metadata to the metadata sets in your collection.  This process involves many different prompts, described in the <a href="importingpreviouslyassignedmetadata.htm">Importing Previously Assigned Metadata</a> section.  For a more detailed explanation of associating metadata with files read Chapter 2 of the Greenstone Developer's Guide -- Getting the most out of your documents.</p> 
    2121 
    22 <p>You can also add a "dummy" document to the collection by right-clicking in the Collection Tree or on a folder, and selecting "New dummy document". This will create a new empty file which can be assigned metadata. The file can be replaced with a "real" file later on.</p>

    14 <p>Sometimes something will go wrong during collection building. This may be one or more files weren't able to be processed: the rest of the collection builds fine, and can be previewed, but some of the documents are not in it. Or the whole collection is not built properly, in which case you will get a message saying "An error has occurred and the collection could not be created.". When this happens, it may be helpful to switch the GLI into expert mode (File-&gt;Preferences-&gt;Mode, see <a href="preferences.htm">Preferences</a>), set the build option "verbosity" to 5, and rebuild, to see if there are any error messages.</p>

In most cases, only one plugin will process a particular type of file, but in some cases, where different file types share the same filename extension, there may be two plugins that both process files with that extension. The "input_encoding" option can be used to specify the encoding of the database. The "metadata_set" option specifies which metadata set the new fields should be added into. If none is specified, then you will be prompted for what to do with each new field found in the database: add it as a new element to an existing metadata set, merge with another element, or ignore.</p>

    21 <p>When a file is exploded, a new empty document is created for each record, and the metadata from the record is assigned to the document. These are named using numbers such as 000001.nul, 000002.nul etc. If the "document_field" option is set (to a database field name), then the value of this field, if present, will be used for the filename. The exploding process will also try to download the file, and use this instead of an empty file. The "document_prefix" and "document_suffix" options can be used to make a valid URL or file path from the document_field value. The "records_per_folder" option can be used to group exploded records into sub-folders. If the database is very large, using this option will make future metadata editing run faster.</p>

     22<p>Explodability is determined by file extension. In some cases, files may be incorrectly labelled as explodable if they have the same file extension as an explodable file. For example, the ProCite plugin processes files with a .txt extension, but most .txt files are plain text files, not ProCite files.</p>

You can specify a custom mapping file to be used instead.</p>

    28 <p>Sometimes two metadata sets may have the same namespace, for example, Dublin Core and Qualified Dublin Core both use the namespace "dc". Sets like this cannot be used in the collection at the same time. If you try to add a set with a namespace already used by the collection, a warning will be shown, and if you go ahead with the add, the existing set will be removed and the new set will be added. Any assigned metadata values will be transferred to the new set providing those elements still exist.</p>
