I'm working on a document library which will display up to 20,000 archived documents in the form of PDFs. Some of these PDFs will also live within content pages which they refer to. There are about 6 different type of documents. Some of these documents help explain a piece of legislation so would like to be able to show related documents based on a keyword. Just looking for examples out there if anyone has seen any?

    Welcome to the site, @chris! Requests for examples don't generally work very well for a Q&A site because there's no one correct answer. Can you clarify your question? What's the specific problem you're facing? – Graham Herrli May 17 '15 at 5:49

  • Users want to be able to come to the site and see all related information they are looking for quickly and easily and be confident they are viewing everything, and that it is up to date. I'm just trying to think what's the best way of organizing this library. Thinking of using filters and perhaps a combination of tabs. One tab might be 'policies' and all policies listed, with related publications listed beneath each policy. Users can then refine by keyword. – chris May 18 '15 at 2:03
  • Perhaps also a tab for news which shows related news...and another tab which is more of a general search. I'm not sure if the tabs are overcomplicating it, but like the concept, as it allows users to see every policy that exists in one location but with the option of refining. Just haven't seen anything out there yet like this and want to make sure I'm heading in the right direction I guess. Hope this makes sense. I'm afraid if I just have a general search, it might be a bit too complicated for the – chris May 18 '15 at 2:08
  • general public. Want to allow them to see everything, if they wish and refine as they go. Any thoughts? – chris May 18 '15 at 2:11
