Can we organize in Eprints different digital collection in one common repository (data base) and can we browse them from one common interface, like in the example of the Cambridge digital library http://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/

Dear Ivana,

Eprints is organized differently from DSpace. It is not configured in terms of ?collections? ? although it of course can be.

Collections are an obsolete hard-copy library concept. In the digital world it is superseded by metadata tagging. 

If you want to search your repository for only a subset of its contents belonging to a category, tag the items in the category accordingly, and then restrict the search to items that have that tag.

For technical questions about the eprints software, please write to the eprints-tech list.

Best wishes,

Stevan
