What is a Collection?

Last Updated: Sep 02, 2016 09:19PM PDT
The default Browse view in Mukurtu CMS shows all digital heritage items on the site that a user has access to (based on the Cultural Protocols that they are a member of), in order of most recently created or edited. Users can search of browse from this view to find content.

To provide users with a more curated or guided experience, create Collections. Collections are groups of items selected by a user with the Curator role. Collections can have title, description, and a featured image, and the order in which items are displayed within a collection can be controlled by the Curator. Digital heritage items from across the site, and from many Cultural Protocols, can be included in one Collection, and users will only see those items they have access to (based on the Cultural Protocols that they are a member of).

Note: While access to individual digital heritage items within a Collection is managed by Cultural protocols, Collections themselves, their titles, descriptions, and featured images will all be publicly visible.

For more information on creating Collections, see the support article How to Create a Collection.
