Collection / Resource Promotion
Promoting Resources and Collections is a useful way of making users aware of fresh content without needing to contact them directly or disrupt their workflow. ResourceSpace provides several methods which make it easy to tempt users with new offerings, whilst making it easy to maintain and manage your promotions.
Careful management of the homepage slideshow will keep your ResourceSpace looking fresh and encourage users to check regularly for new content. For optimal styling use the transform plugin to select and crop your slideshow images, see our handy Homepage Slideshow guide for more information.
Resource of the Day
This is a plugin which replaces the home page slideshow with a linked resource for the current day.
A System Administrator can allocate a date field to use for determining on which day the resource will be "Resource of the Day".
See Resource of the Day for the user guide.
Carefully maintaining your Featured Collections to ensure a good selection of resource collections are being promoted will help to make users aware of the range of resources available within your ResourceSpace installation.
See Creating Featured Collections for more information.
Public collections are similar to featured collections but are accessed from a different area. Managing your public collections is important to ensure you are making the best of your resources, making available the right material and hiding resources that are outdated or have been archived.
See Creating Public Collections for information on setting up public collections.
