Place your Archive on Google

For those with public facing collections who wish to extend their audience and interest in the collections and content you curate, open up your archive to Google. Our Search Portal can integrate with Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools to help Google index the records in your collection.

This will help a worldwide audience find you online and drive more interest into the work you do. However, if you wish to keep your collections private, we can ensure Google and others are unable to access the content and records in your catalogue.
