New Feature — Multiple Catalog Management

Blog Home

We’re rolling out the academic catalog for Southwestern Adventist University, and with it we’re rolling out a new feature: multiple catalog management. You can check it out for yourself by visiting the site and toggling between “undergraduate bulletin” and “graduate bulletin.” To learn more about how it works, read on.

The Short Version

Multiple catalog management allows you to have two or more distinct catalogs that you manage with the same system. Catalogs can share content as needed.

What Is It Used For?

The initial use case is to manage separate undergraduate and graduate catalogs. For Southwestern Adventist University, these are two separate publications, and they wanted to keep the content separate for their distinct audiences. However, they didn’t want to manage two fully separate sites — with all their users, branding, configuration, and so on — and they wanted to be able to share content between sites.

This same sort of setup could be used if your college had distinct campuses with distinct offerings, or if you had multiple separate schools within your college that you wanted to completely separate — a college of business and a college of arts, for example.

How Is It Managed on the Back End?

When you edit a page, you can easily mark which catalog or catalogs it belongs to, and it will automatically show up on that catalog in the appropriate place.

On the back-end, you can easily sort content by which catalog it belongs to, and edit or adjust from there as needed.

We’re consistently adding new features to Clean Catalog, and the multiple-catalog setup gives colleges another option for organizing and managing their catalog content in ways that are clear to their audience and make sense for their internal structure.
