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. This module is required for Islandora to work as expected. 


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.
