How to Add Book Pages

Last Updated: May 18, 2017 09:36AM PDT
Book Pages, or Multi-Page Documents (MPDs), are additions to digital heritage items that allow multiple pages to be added to an item. The pages can be navigated and browsed through within the same digital heritage item page, and do not show up as unique digital heritage items when browsing or searching the site. Each book page can have a unique media asset and unique metadata - they are not inherited from the first page.

To add a book page, ensure that the first page has been created as a digital heritage item. From the digital heritage item page click Add a Book Page.



Some of the fields that are required when creating a digital heritage item are required here: Title and Category. All book page share the same Community, Cultural Protocol, and Sharing Setting as the initial digital heritage item. Additionally, the Relations tab is not present on book pages. When the book page is complete, click Save.



To reorder book pages, from the first page in the book, click the Edit button.



Navigate to the Relations tab.
In the Book Pages section, use the cross symbol beside each page to drag them into the desired order. Click Save when done.
