Adding Collections

A Collection in the EBTJV Web Portal works much like a report or query does in a database. The idea is that you use a Collection to search the portal based on a set of Criteria such as: Tags (Climate Change, Webinars, Endangered Species), content type (File, Page, News item, Image), the date it was published, location (in a particular folder), or search terms contained in the title, description, or body.
