Collection Tree plugin allows Omeka sites to have nested collections. One collection can have at most one parent collection, but a collection may have zero or multiple child collections.

Once you have installed collection tree, the plugin will create a tab on the left-hand navigation of the admin side of the site. This tab allows you to view your collection hierarchy. To create a child/parent relationship between collections, you must edit the collection.

Nesting Tree

You can only nest collections once you have at least two collections.

To create a new child collection: 1. Go to the Collections tab on the left hand navigation of the admin dashboard. 1. Click the Add a Collection button 1. Add the metadata as needed 1. Go to the Parent Collection tab across the top of the Add Collection menu 1. From the dropdown menu, select the parent collection for the current collection.
