Is there any way when creating a personal book of setting in which collection I want the book to be included?

Thanks

Martin,

collections follow rules that may include resource fields you can edit in the PB tool (such as title, author and subject). So it depends whether they are included automatically. Then you may add any book (including PBs) manually with the "Plus these resources" filed in the collection editor.

Does this help?

Mick,

Thanks for the reply.

I know I can add a PB to a collection manually, but I am looking for something in PB creation whereby I could say what collection I would like the book to be included in. Then when it is built it is included in the designated collection.

I guess this facility is not available?

Martin.

Not the way you are describing. The key is in the creation of the collection rules AND in the metadata for the personal book. For example: You could create a collection to include all books with the subject of FAMILY. Then when you create the personal book, you give it a subject of FAMILY. It will then be automatically included. Does that make sense? When you create the book, make sure to look at the "add field" button.

Thanks. I think the "add field" function will help. I will try it in the next day or two.
