Those container_* fields are actually not part of the hierarchical collection module; they are used for indexing journal articles.  Their purpose is to show that the indexed item is a component of some larger item.  You might be able to adapt this for the purposes of displaying series information, but I think perhaps you are actually thinking about the hierarchical collection module.  If that’s the case, see this page for details on the Solr fields that need to be populated:


It’s a bit complicated, so please let me know if you have any questions about it.

Subject: [VuFind-General] Collection Module


Hi all,

our ILS is not able to export correctly series and its items. Now I found in the out commented part for the collection module:

#container_volume = 773v
#container_issue = 773l
#container_start_page = 773q
#container_reference = 773g
#container_title = 773s

I thought that I could adapt the collection module to our needs as follows:
I'd fill the...
container_title = title of the series
container_reference = System-ID of the title (found in 001)
container_issue = ID of the issue (found in 001)
container_issue_id = IDs of each issue (found in 001)

Before I start to modify the import and export: Does it makes sense what I'm writting here? Will this work?
