There are many different manuscript collections at Carolina Rediviva. In most cases you have to be in the Library itself in order to be able to use the catalogues that the staff at the Section for Special Collection can provide for you. However some can be found in the following digital catalogues:
- Alvin - platform for digital collections and digitized cultural heritage, among which archives of individuals, families and organisations kept at Uppsala University Library and in other libraries.
