We’re just starting out and trying to figure out at what level we should be organising our collections.
We have scanned images of manuscripts, with up to several hundred pages per manuscript. To me it seems like a manuscript would be a single item containing a few hundred files. This works for Omeka S, but when I try that with Omeka Classic I have problems such as the mirador viewer only showing one page. When I reorganise it so each page is a single item, and a manuscript is one collection, then the viewer works as expected.
Before we go too far into adding items (we’ve tens of thousands of images), can anyone advise which way we should organise things? Our manuscripts are grouped into categories, so I’ve added the Collection Tree plugin for that.
(We’ve not settled on whether to use Omeka S or Classic, although I’m leaning towards Classic for this site.)
