A glossary with views and contexts

A glossary index is a helpful tool for our patrons to find the journals that they are looking for – building your first glossary can be a struggle so here’s a 2 minute video to walk you through the basics

Working in the arguments region in views

Once we had the block built we attached it to our view of titles using contexts.  Another way that would have been acceptable would have been Views Attach.  I wanted to use the attached views, however I wasn’t entirely certain about all possible use cases, so we just went with  a block and joined everything up using contexts.

A path, node type, and taxonomy based context

And yes, we could have added “views” conditions as well, although it is already pretty much overkilled…  in any case it’s another beautiful day with contexts & views
