8th July 2006

Edinburgh City Libraries have launched their updated online image collection at Capital Collections. It provides access to many of the collections held in the Central Library and highlights from the Museums’ collections. At its foundation is iBase Trinity online library and digital asset management system. Behind the scenes the super-user interface is used for cataloguing, indexing and publishing images and metadata to the website.

Special exhibitions on the Capital Collections site include ‘The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage’, ‘Edinburgh Landmarks’, ‘Panoramas of Edinburgh’, and ‘Edinburgh Castle’. Whether you are researching your family tree or doing a school project, you can discover the historical and cultural life of Edinburgh, Scotland and the Scots through this growing image library which includes a wonderful selection of photographs, drawings, watercolours and engravings.
