Detalj ur Uppsala från söder, akvarellerad teckning av Carolina Sjöman, ca 1840-50


The Library has extensive collections of pictures including engravings and lithographs, drawings, postcards, photographs and printed pictures. The subject-matter is mainly portraits, topographical views and historic events.  

The collections have been built up since the 17th century through donations, legal deposits and purchase. A small part of the picture collections are searchable online in Alvin, Uppsala University Library's platform for digital collections and digitised cultural heritage. The staff at the library are happy to help you find what you need in other catalogues, lists or directly in the collections.
