A collection is a construct within an ASP script that holds a number of objects. The number of objects in a collection might be as few as zero. There are no upper limits. In most circumstances a collection might hold objects of only one type. For example, an object representing a set of database results might contain a Fields collection that contains numerous Field objects.
A group of matchcovers, which have been put into a recognizable order or arrangement.
A group of objects, with or without any particular relationships other than belonging to a named group.
A generic term for a group of objects. Typically these are further classified as: sets (no duplicates), bags (duplicates), and sequences (duplicates, ordered). Any collection object should at minimum support the following operations: size return the number of elements in the collection; for bag or sequence duplicates are counted as separate items. iteration loop over the items in the collection visiting each item once; for a sequence the ordering is significant.
A set of objects that share some common aspect.
an object that encapsulates a data structure for storing other objects
similar to a folder but more suitable for holding large numbers of objects. Collections are searched rather than browsed to locate items within them.
A group of objects that have something in common, such as the owner or donor (such as the Point Ellice House collection of household Victoriana), type of object (for example, a Clothing collection), or a regional or geographic location (such as a Chinese Collection or Skeena Fishing Collection).
a group of objects or works to be seen, studied, or kept together
In the Tivoli environment, a container that groups objects on a Tivoli desktop, thus providing the Tivoli administrator with a single view of related resources. Either the Tivoli Framework or a Tivoli administrator can create a collection. The contents of a collection are referred to as its members. Examples of collections include the administrator collection and the generic collection; the administrator collection is an example of a collection generated by the Tivoli Framework.
An instance of a collection data type; a group of elements of the same data type stored in a SET, MULTISET, or LIST. See also collection data type.
A set of elements in which each element is an object.
1. group of records from one source 2. total holdings of a repository 3. large grouping of collections within a repository
A collection is a logical name given to a set of data objects. All data objects stored in SRB/MCAT are stored in some collection. A collection can have sub-collections, and hence provides a hierarchical structure. As a simple analogy, a collection in SRB/MCAT can be equated to a directory in a Unix file system. But unlike a file system, a collection is not limited to a single device (or partition). A collection is logical but the data objects grouped under a collection can be stored in heterogeneous storage devices. There is one obvious restriction, the name given to a data object in a collection or sub-collection should be unique in that collection.
An object that contains a set of related objects. In Visual Basic, you can create collections to store data as an alternative to using arrays.
Groups of clothing of different styles made and created by fashion designers.

An object that contains a set of related objects. An object's position in the collection can change whenever a change occurs in the collection; therefore, the position of any specific object in the collection may vary.
A group of objects with a similar set of management rules and contained within a storage group. Every object is in a collection, and all objects in a collection are stored in the same storage group.
a group of books and journals dealing with a specific topic or discipline, (e.g., an animal welfare collection, a history of veterinary medicine collection).
An aggregation of two or more other objects, where those objects can be any combination of Information Objects and/or Collections. Each Collection is considered to be suitable for being adequately documented for preservation, distribution and independent usage.
A collection is the entire set of objects created by evaluation of allocators for an access type.
A group of related objects (see Using Collections for more details).
A set of data that resulted from a DBMS query.
A set of directory objects that can be represented using the same data type. In ADSI, you can use the IADsCollection interface to work with collections.
A collection is a group of objects. It is created for the purpose of treating these separate objects as a set instead of as independent entities. The objects in a collection are indexed, which means you can iterate over them and access an object based on its position (index) in the collection.
refers to two or more electronic documents containing related information that have been grouped together to facilitate retrieval.
A group of viruses intentionally organized for the purpose of keeping and enjoying the files.
A grouping of data sets that all come from the same source, such as a modeling group, institution, or journal article. For example, all of the VEMAP2 data sets, produced by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) have been grouped together into a single collection. A complete list of collections can be viewed using the collection filter of the Search and Retrieve Tool on the Data page.
