Having a pathway to the items contained within your collection is vitally important for access and discovery. Having numerous pathways is even better.
Create multiple ways for users to find items by featuring them in multiple collections. By creating more than one collection structure, to represent the same content, for example ‘date’ and ‘location’, you increase the chances of those items being discovered.
Related Collections not only offer flexibility and broaden your search, they offer the opportunity for wider exploration too, highlighting other collections that your users might also be interested in.
