When I heard this news from Follett yesterday, I was so excited.
We can now organize Collections in Collection Sets!
A Set is a Collection that holds resources and other Collections. Sets can be shared with others (teachers, students, global friends, families, etc...) in the same way that a Collection is shared now.
You can read all about this update in What's New in Collections from Follett.
I create and work with Collections every day. It is my favorite go-to place for curating and sharing all of the amazing resources I find and create every day.10 Collections for all of the Future Ready Librarian wedges.
Future Ready Librarian Tools and Resources Collection.
You just have to check it out...you will love this!
Let me show you how to create a Collection Set too. It is super simple and quick.
I clicked on Collections.
It is super easy to add Collections, because it gives you a nice alphabetical list of all the Collections you have created. It even tells you if they are Public or Private.
After I checked them all, I clicked on Add at the bottom of the Collections list.
You can tell they are Collections because of the black top with my name. This shows it is a Collection I have created.
If I click on the little three dots in the right hand corner,
it gives me the chance to Remove the Collection too.
Now when I look at the Collection I have created, I notice that the Future Ready Librarian Tools and Resources Collection in the upper left corner...
contains 16 items and 11 Collections.
I can also tell that others collaborate with me on this one...that is the little people icon in the right hand corner.
Thank you, Follett. Collections just keep getting more awesome all the time!
