Title (Goal)Ability to specify the emphasis of a collection through GUI
Primary ActorAdministrator
Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)

Admin wants to be able to specify if a collection should be thesis emphasis, file emphasis, or gallery emphasis from GUI


  1. Would the emphasis be enforced during item submission?  Would this alter the presentation for the collection?

  2. I'm unclear what is meant by "emphasis" and how this would change the collection. Could you provide some more details as to what would be expected to happen if a collection was marked as "thesis emphasis" vs "file emphasis", etc?

    This Use Case also may be related to: End User - Visual collection browsing (as that sounds like it could be an example of "gallery emphasis")
