Provide narrative information

Build an evolving story around your collections

EMu’s Narratives module allows users to author narrative material and associate it with different components of a collection: objects, sites, people, multimedia resources, events, and so on. Narratives can be developed for specific audiences (primary school children, researchers, the general public for instance) and are suitable for a wide range of purposes, such as exhibition overviews, wall labels, brochures, and web-based stories.

What our customers say about EMu

There’s a lot of institutional history that’s fragmented among our different curatorial departments and the system provides a context and a milieu in which to reunite that information that’s been orphaned in many cases for over 100 years.

Our ability now to be online and to have people access our collection in that way to complete research is really helping us to fulfil the mission to the public.

Even I can use it! It’s simple, it’s quick. But mostly the support we get from Axiell is great.
