    2020<p>To use another metadata set with the loaded collection, click "Add...". A popup window shows you the default metadata sets that GLI knows about. To add one of these, select it from the list and click "Add". If you have defined your own metadata set, you can use the "Browse" button to locate the file on your file system.</p> 
    2121 
    22 <p>To create a new metadata set, click "New...". This will launch the Greenstone Editor for Metadata Sets, or GEMS. An initial popup window prompts you for the set name, namespace and description. You can also choose to base the new set on an existing one, in which case it will inherit all the elements from the specified set. Click OK. The main window shows the metadata set on the left hand side, and some attributes for the set on the right hand side. If you have based the set on an existing one, there will be one or more elements displayed. Clicking on one of these will display attributes of the element in the right hand side.</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>

    32 <p>If you no longer need a metadata set, select it and press "Remove" to remove it. If you have assigned any metadata to elements in the removed set you will be asked how to deal with this metadata when you next open the collection.</p>
