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

Western Medieval Manuscripts
ongoing digitisation projects at Uppsala University Library:
- Swedish literary works published during the 19th century. Approximately 8,500 works will be digitised during 2020-2022 within the research project New Paths to the Past.
- Labraunda-archive Documentation from the Swedish archaeological excavations at Labraunda, Turkey. Digitisation of thousands of photographs, drawings etc. will be digitised in collaboration with the research project Common Ground.
- Books about law, within Juridikbok.se (under construction) Juridikbok.se is a national foundation and a collaboration between university libraries with legal educations, the judiciary, legal publishers and law firms. The goal is to digitize and make available Swedish books about law that are not commercially viable.
