A Collection is a list which has child entities related to it together with metadata to describe itself. Collections are often used to group Assets and other Collections together as a way to organie them similar to creating a directory on a computer hard drive. Unlike a directory, members of a collection can be members of multiple collections at once.

Collection metadata

There is metadata on the collection such as it's title and it's creator.

Ownership and ACLs

The User that creates a collection is consider it's owner. Additional rights to be able to view, edit or delete a collection can be edited using ACLs.

Additionally a collection can have an ACL applied to it that any member of the collection will inherit.
