Collections are folders used to organise Objects in the Methods Inventory. In this case, Objects are protocols.
Collections need to be organised in two folders.
For example, if we want to create a collection of lab protocols for microscopy and Mass spec, we need to adopt the following steps:
- Create two Object types called MICROSCOPY_PROTOCOL and MS_PROTOCOL. This can only be done by an Instance admin, from the admin interface (see New Entity Type Registration).
- Register a first folder called Protocols
- In the Protocols folder, register two additional folders called Microscopy Protocols and MS Protocols
The steps for the registration of the folders are the same as explained in Create Collections of Materials
