StateReference consists of collections. Each collection holds records from a particular data source (except Public Records Requests where we collect records from a multitude of sources).

The items in a collection share the same metadata fields. For example, items in Public Records Division Appeals have fields for the type of appeal, the date the appeal was opened, etc.
