It is important to be able to organise your data as efficiently as possible so, at the point of upload, PastView’s advanced database enables each individual item to be assigned a series of relevant attributes.

These attributes might include the date a photograph was taken, the title, the name of the photographer, or the author. These attributes can then be organised into attribute sets: the usual list of attributes you would expect to record for a specific type of item.

Applying attributes is vital for the smooth and efficient structure of your collection, driving the search behind it and helping to inform the specific searchable fields you will want to include to support access and discovery.
