Overview

The Islandora Core Collection Solution Pack module allows Islandora to view and manipulate objects as a collection. Installing the module allows collections to be viewed and created, and adds the 'Collection' button to all collections' management pages. It also adds the Islandora Collection content model to the list of solution packs.

Usage

Information about the links on an object's 'Collection' button (found on its 'Manage' tab) can be found in the various subsections under Chapter 3 - Getting Started with Islandora.

Configuration

Configuration options for the Core Collection module can be found at http://path.to.your.site/admin/islandora/basic_collection, and include the following options:

  • The default number of objects to show for a collection: If a collection contains more than the number of objects displayed here, it will split them up into pages.
  • Select the default collection view style: Grid view displays icons with little information, while list view can be used to get more metadata at a glance.
  • Disable deleting the collection policy: Unchecking this box will allow you to delete and then replace any collection's policy datastream. This is an advanced technique and generally should be left checked.

Content Models, Prescribed Datastreams and Forms
