ContentTier 2-4: Text type

Content Tier 2 (Europeana as a showcase)

If you want to enable Europeana to present your text materials as part of thematic collections and make them more accessible on the Europeana website then you need to provide at least a direct link to the file(s) of the document, in PDF file format, which will be made directly available on thematic collections pages via a PDF viewer. Although Europeana currently does not support a full-text search across documents, we recommend adding an embedded text layer in PDF files to allow for searching inside the document. Additionally, the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) is also supported by Europeana and can be used for displaying text materials on Europeana to allow text collections to qualify as Tier 2. For single page text material (e.g. manuscripts, letters), providing direct links to an image file of at least 0.42 megapixel in size is also an option.

Content Tier 3 (Europeana as a distribution platform for non-commercial reuse)

If you want to make use of Europeana as a distribution platform that enables the use of your text materials by private individuals, educators and researchers then, in addition to the criteria described for Tier 2 above, you also need to make sure that the text documents come with one of the seven rights statements that allow reuse

  • 4 Creative Commons licences: CC BY-NC, CC BY-ND, CC BY-NC-SA, CC BY-NC-ND;

  • 3 RightsStatements.org's statements: NoC-NC, NoC-OKLR, InC-EDU).

If you provide text as image files, they need to be at least 0.95 megapixel in size. 

Content Tier 4 (Europeana as a free reuse platform)

If you want to make use of Europeana as a platform that enables the free reuse of your text materials then, in addition to the criteria described for Tier 2 above, you also need to make sure that the text documents come with a rights statement that allows free reuse (CC BY, CC BY-SA, CC0 or PDM).
