Edinburgh Collected is a place to share, explore and discuss your memories of Edinburgh.

Everyone can browse, or you can sign up to:

  • upload your own memories
  • save your favourite memories in a scrapbook.

Edinburgh Collected is managed and maintained by Edinburgh Libraries, part of the City of Edinburgh Council (CEC).

All the material added will expand the City’s digital heritage collections, adding to the material held in the Central Library, already the most extensive collection about Edinburgh in existence.

All images and text added to the site are also available as open data. This means that site content can be shared and reused, offering further opportunities for innovative digital products that promote engagement with heritage and collections.
