Edinburgh Collected

Edinburgh Collected collage

Edinburgh Collected is a new website, launched yesterday, for collecting, preserving and sharing memories of Edinburgh past and present.  It allows individuals and groups to add content that builds on our existing digital heritage collections  www.capitalcollections.org.uk and www.ourtownstories.co.uk  and complements the extensive physical collections Edinburgh Libraries hold.

Edinburgh Collected is free, and easy to use anywhere as it will work on desktops and on a range of mobile devices. Individuals and groups can add their  memories to this new community archive for Edinburgh as it is easy to create an account and start adding and sharing memories and making scrapbooks.

If you’re interested in hearing more about Edinburgh Collected, then why not come along to the LocScot Dayschool on 19th May. In the morning we’ll be having a visit to RCAHMS and in the afternoon you are invited to Edinburgh Central Library for lunch and a presentation about this new website.

Put the date in your diary – booking information and a programme to follow soon.
