Collections consist of publications from multiple agencies and from multiple series. If a group of publications are not a Series and cannot be easily isolated through a single search query, it may be a good candidate for being a collection (for example "domestic violence reports").
Collections are identified using the metatag dcterms:isPartOf.
(1) Cannot be created from two or fewer other metadata fields such as agency, type, and topic, and
(2) Are used for faceted metadata browse facets, and
(3) Are used to support collection search boxes
Collection is used to support of OAI-PMH harvesting by OAI providers such as the Mountain West Digital Library, Collection values will be mapped to the Dublin Core Description field.
Note: For collection names in quotes, replace each quotation mark with %22 in the HTML link markup.
