Sharing collections online with the ECK

Sharing collections information online through platforms like Europeana and Wikipedia is a great way to unlock the potential in your collections, which is why the Collections Trust have been working on projects that enable you to do this in a controlled and simple way. One of the results of a recently completed project was the Easy Connection Kit. The ECK is a functionality within existing Collections Management Systems that allows you to structure, validate and submit the records you choose to the platforms you want to share them with. The ECK works with most of the major Collections Management Systems.
