In Mandala, you can use Knowledge Maps to connect related resources.  To do this, you label your resources in each tool. The resource will then show up under the terms in Subjects and Places.

This guide shows you how to add Knowledge Maps to each type of asset. We assume that you've already made your entries: if you haven't, learn more at Create Content
