5 Easy Steps on how to setup your SoundCloud audio so it can be shared with EOL

Step 1: Provide the taxon name either as a tag or pasted in the description section of your audio record.

Example: “taxonomy:binomial=Anarhichas lupus”

(the quotes are needed to help SoundCloud identify the entire name as a tag, not each element of the name)

Step 2: Under the License section, you must choose one of these four Creative Commons licenses:


NOTE - Please Do Not Choose/Click ‘No Derivative Works’ as a license option- this will prevent your sound from being included in EOL.

Step 3: Under Settings section. Choose/click ‘Public’. Do not choose ‘Private’.

Step 4: Under ‘Advanced settings’ section, be sure to ‘enable downloads’.

Step 5: Become a member of the EOL SoundCloud group

If you’ve done everything correctly your sounds will be harvested by EOL and will show up on the Media tab of the taxon page associated with the sound you’ve uploaded. See an example.
