How to add book pages

Book Pages, or Multi-Page Documents (MPDs), are additions to digital heritage items that allow multiple pages to be added to an item.

  • The pages can be navigated and browsed through within the same digital heritage item page.
  • Each page can have completely unique metadata, which allows for granular page-level description. One exception is that all pages will use the same communities and protocols.
  • One important note is that in order for all pages to be indexed by search, at this time, ALL PAGES will show up individually on the digital heritage browse page. While there are ways to work with this, some users find the display of multiple pages to add unwanted visual bulk to the browse pages.
    • If this is the case for your site, and you do not need unique page-level metadata, consider adding each page as a separate media asset within a single digital heritage item instead.
