Archiving is a way of keeping resources within the system which have been useful or popular, but removing them from the main body of resources to encourage users to look at new material. This is particularly useful if you have resources which have been used extensively for a project or campaign and need to be rested, or where an updated version has been made available but the original should be retained. Users of the system won't be able to access these resources any longer but they can be retrieved and put back into circulation at a later date, allowing your popular resources to be used again.
To Archive a resource:
- Browse to the resource you wish to archive
- Click "Edit" under resource tools
- Next to Status select "Archived" from the drop down list
- Click Save
You can search the archives by going to the following location:
Admin > Manage Resources > Manage Archive Resources > Search Archived Resources
