MovesCollect and MovesScrapbook

MovesCollect and MovesScrapbook are interconnected tools which allow people to interact with and use content on Europeana for their own personal or work-related projects. They were developed under the Europeana Generic Service project CultureMoves

About the tools

MovesCollect is a browser plugin that allows users to select and save cultural heritage content into their own MovesScrapbook boards. MovesScrapbook enables the user to organise and mix previously saved material with their own content and create unique stories shown as scrapbooks. These narratives can be used by educators, scholars, creatives, tourism professionals and the general public in their storytelling projects.  

Benefits of the tools 

  • Encourage creative storytelling and are easy to use
  • Help cultural heritage institutions to increase engagement with their digital collections across audiences

  • Support educators to increase participation in the classroom and encourage the creation of new learning resources

  • Offer opportunities to promote local heritage and tourism through rich, digital narratives
