Why have multiple catalogs?
There are multiple reasons why an institution would publish two or more concurrent, active catalogs. An example would be having a separate undergraduate catalog from the graduate catalog. Another example would be an on-campus catalog separate from the online catalog. Kuali allows institutions to use their curriculum data to publish as many catalogs as they see fit for their institutional needs.
How does Kuali manage multiple active catalogs?
By default, Kuali Catalog Management allows institutions to publish one full active catalog at a time. To publish two or more active catalogs, institutions can submit a request to our team when needed. After you submit a request, our team will work with your institution to determine what data should appear in each catalog. Institutions can define how to separate data into multiple catalogs. There is some data that will live within one catalog or another, and other data that can be shared across the multiple catalogs.
Using Multiple Active Catalogs
How can I create multiple active catalogs?
To request support for multiple active catalogs, please submit a request and our team will contact you with additional details.
How do I embed new versions multiple active catalogs year over year?
Each new version of a catalog or a new type of catalog will have a unique ID. This ID will be used in the embed code added to the page on your website where you want your catalog to render. This allows each catalog to be hosted on unique pages for archival purposes and search engine optimization.
The highlighted catalog ID above can be found in the URL of the catalog within Catalog Management.
