Having a pathway to the items in your collection is vitally important for access and discoverability. Having numerous pathways is even better and Related Collections enable you to do just that.
A Related Collection creates multiple ways for a user to find an item by featuring it in multiple collections. By creating more than one collection structure to represent the same content, for example ‘date’ and ‘location’, it increases the chance of discovery of the items within that collection.
Related Collections not only offer flexibility and broaden your search, but they offer the opportunity for wider exploration through the highlighting of ‘related collections’ that your users might also find helpful.
