How do I know what can I (re)use?
Creating a Europeana account allows you to save your favorite items, and to create public and private galleries.
With a Europeana account, it's easy to save your favorite items for future reference. Simply click on the heart icon that you see on item pages and search results, and click again to un-like an item.
Creating and building galleries of your favorite items is easy too. Simply click on the + symbol next to the item. You will then be prompted to 'Create new gallery' or add to an existing gallery.
In the My Likes & Galleries section of your account area, you can edit the names and descriptions of your galleries. You can choose whether to make your galleries private (visible to you only) or public (visible to other Europeana users).
