Everything you need to publish in Europeana

Good data gives audiences a better experience and a greater connection with your collections. We have therefore worked hard to make the process as straightforward as possible. We hope that our documentation is clear enough and will help you understand what we need so that your digital data is always seen to be authentic, trustworthy and robust by our audiences. 

For publishing in Europeana there are likely questions that need answers along the way. This page is your reference point. Below, you can find the documentation you’ll need to publish data in an accurate and consistent way.
