Are you ready to share your collection? See the steps below. 

1. Find an aggregator. Europeana works with 31 accredited national, thematic and domain aggregators who assist cultural heritage institutions in their digital transformation. They play a key role in the Europeana ecosystem by offering cultural heritage institutions tools, expertise, and support to share their collections. 

2. Prepare your data. The aggregator you select to work with will advise you how to digitise, describe your content including with domain and subject vocabularies to use, which media formats are most suitable, how to select a appropriate copyright license, and on accessibility, multilingualism best practices.

3. Receive usage feedback and improve the quality of your content. To maximize the visibility and reach of your collection we provide regular feedback on the amount of views your collection receives, the quality of your collection according to tier classification which it outlined in the Publishing Framework and tips on how you can maximize your reach.
