Attribute Sets

Making your collections searchable is one of your main priorities, effectively enhancing access and discoverability.

Creating Attribute Sets is a way of organising and collecting data to make search results as quick and comprehensive as possible. An Attribute Set is the combination of data that makes up a particular format. For example, a journal set might include the issue number and date of publication. Photos might include the date the picture was taken, together with the place, venue, and photographer’s name.

Attribute Sets power your search through sub-categorisation, providing filters that can be applied separately between different formats.
