This section describes the Depositor Metadata pane, where you can specify which metadata fields should be used to describe the new items added through Depositor. Any metadata sets that have been associated with the current collection will be available for selection. If there is no other metadata set than the "Greenstone Extracted Metadata Set" associated to the collection, the "Dublin Core Metadata Set" will be used as default. To learn more about the Depositor, see the online tutorial exercise at Under the "Format" tab, click "Depositor Metadata".</Text>

A drop-down list contains two components will appear right after the element. This allows you to specify the input container of the element in the web interface. "text" means that a single text input will be used, whereas "textarea" means that a multi-line text input will be used. Select an appropirate one for the field.</Text>
