Uppsala University Library

Recently catalogued archives in Alvin

Continuous work is carried out at the Manuscript and Music unit to catalogue Uppsala University Library’s personal and departmental archives – known as individual archives – Alvin, a platform for digital collections and digitized cultural heritage.

This work has been supported by a generous donation from the late librarian Greta Renborg. The following list, which is updated regularly, details the latest archives to be catalogued in Alvin. The links lead to the catalogue items.
