Repository Administrators and Editors can use this package to group together ePrints into one or more containers. The name of the container could be a large project for example; this then links to one or more ePrints in the repository. Containers can be hierarchical, enabling the stacking of several project containers within a Unit of Assessment for the REF container for example. The advantage of this is that the top level container will inherit information from the nested containers. A browse feature displays the relationships between the containers.

Kultivate Project Containers also enable the creation of new items from an existing container. When a new item is created this saves data entry by including information from the container including the users as creators and the subjects, funders, divisions and category fields.

This package was developed for the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS), a Research Centre of the University for the Creative Arts as part of the JISC funded Kultivate project (2010-11). More information is available here: http://www.vads.ac.uk/kultur2group/projects/kultivate/
