Uppsala University Library

A selection of digitized works and collections

A selection of digitized works and collections from Uppsala University Library, of which most are available through Alvin - our platform for digital collections and digitized cultural heritage. The purpose of the Alvin platform is to preserve and make digitized collections available, but the database is also a catalogue of materials not yet digitized. All digitized materials in Alvin are made free to download and use.
