SCOPE NOTE
  • The term is also used in OpenMinTeD exclusively for resources of different types. However, for collections of single items, DataCite recommends the use of the single-item term (e.g. for collection of publications the use of "publication"). In OpenMinTeD this is not always the case: for instance, the preferred term for a collection of publications is "corpus".

SOURCE
  • DataCite

EXAMPLE
  • The collection of resources of the British Library (including books, maps, manuscripts, images etc.)
