Trying to analyze the XML file of a book I concluded to some points regarding the collections of a book. So Let's have as a reference the below structure of XML:
<collection-meta collection-type="book-series"> <title-group> <title>Programme Grants for Applied Research</title> </title-group> <volume-in-collection><volume-number>8.2</volume-number></volume-in-collection> <issn publication-format="print">2050-4322</issn> <issn publication-format="electronic">2050-4330</issn> </collection-meta> <collection-meta collection-type="ncbi-books-collection"> <title-group> <title>Programme Grants for Applied Research</title> </title-group> <collection-id collection-id-type="pmcid">ukpgfarcollect</collection-id> </collection-meta>
Some are queries more for confirming that my thoughts are on the right road, and some others are questions on what we need to have in SFM.
A book could have multiple Collections
A collection has a title,
collection-type(book-series, ncbi-books-collection) and it's own metadata
Do we have predefined collection Types (
collection-type)? do they play any particular role in the workflow of the SFM or is just
should be assigned to a book from within system admin?
Are there more than those collections metadata which is not in my example? I can only see
collection-id, ISSN, title.
Since we need to create collections from within the System Admin probably we need a list of field attributes that are going to be saved in our database.
