There is, of course, the chapter in the online manual "Collect for
Output", which explains not only how to use the command, but also how it
works (what it does).

I could also recommend that users check out the flossmanuals book
"Scribus", either the original in French at fr.flossmanuals.net, or the
English translation at en.flossmanuals.net. The book is good for
describing an approach to using Scribus beginning at the planning
stages, and including the idea of a directory structure for various
projects that helps organize and control your content.
