This documentation covers the latest release of Islandora 7.x.
The Islandora Collection Solution Pack module allows Islandora to view and manipulate objects as a collection. Installing the module allows collections to be created, managed and viewed, and adds the 'Collection' button to the Manage page of collection objects. It also adds the Islandora Collection content model to the list of solution packs.
NOTE! This module is required for Islandora to work as expected.
Without the Islandora Collection Solution Pack, end-users will not be able to create new collections.
NOTE: The collection solution pack requires that the resource index is enabled in Fedora, as it does all of its queries using the resource index.
Information about the links on an object's 'Collection' button (found on its 'Manage' tab) can be found in the various subsections under Getting Started with Islandora.
