REST-based API

The CollectionObject Service offers a REST-based Application Programming Interface (API) to CRUD (create, read, update, and delete) operations on individual CollectionObject instances, plus list operations on multiple CollectionObject instances. These follow the Common model for CollectionSpace REST services.
