At the very core of your archive search is the relationships that exist between your items, the things that connect them. It’s all about the Related Entities that you can identify.
The better you can create those pathways into your collections, the more accessible and discoverable your items will be. For example, you could create a collection of all the people that exist in your archive, a collection of all the battles they have taken part in, and a collection of their individual stories. These collections will then automatically tie all of these things together.
Related Entities not only offer increased flexibility but they broaden your users search results and offer wider opportunities for exploration.
