Box Collections provides the ability to organize your Box content in logical groups of your choice to fit your needs and preferences. Collections can include files and folders you own and that have been shared with you as a collaborator. Collections are unique to your account and do not affect anyone else's access to shared content.

Note: The new UI was released to OSU's Box on February 16, 2021.
