Alma Collection Limits



Is there a limit to how many items/bib records can be added to an Alma Collection?


A collection is an entity that aggregates bibliographic records that have a relationship of some kind. A collection can be based on the topic or subject matter. There is no official limit to how many sub-collections a top-level collection can have. Ex Libris recommends to structure the collections in an efficient manner to the users, i.e. placing several thousands of objects directly under any given node is discouraged.

See Managing Collections for more related information.
