EMu 4.1 introduces the Collection Descriptions module (CDM) which, as its name suggests, holds high level descriptive details about collections. A collection is very broadly any group of related or grouped items. The relationship may be items collected on an expedition; paintings from a particular period or by a specific artist, and so on.

As with information held in the Narratives module, collection level information is particularly useful for use on the web, and the CDM has been designed to facilitate web access. One opportunity presented by this module is cross-institutional searching of collection level details. Institutions which choose to participate can allow their CDM records to be harvested and made available for searching via their own website and that of any other participating institution.

This document provides a set of screen shots of each tab in the Collection Description module and a description of the fields on each tab.
