Hi Matt - great article and some really useful advice.

Another way to increase discovery and use of resources is releasing them under an open license that explicitly permits reuse and sharing. Open licences generally require a citation, which would allow you to ensure that the many people who see your resource would be able to find the source of it (and thus further resources).

For some collections, open licenses may not be possible. - but in these cases releasing a portion of the collection (or eg lower quality images) may be a useful way to drive awareness.
