We have large collections containing many different types of images. These include photographs, drawings, engravings, portraits, postcards and chest prints. Only a small part of our image collections is searchable online. Please contact us for help with finding images in our collections.

Digitized images

We are working on making our image collections more easily accessible, mainly by digitization. Most of our digitized image collections are available in the national portal Alvin.

The local image database is now closed and replaced by Alvin

Our image collections with Per Bagge's collection and the De la Gardie map collection have moved to the portal Alvin.  The major part of the images have been transferred to Alvin. In order to transfer what is left we have closed our old local image database. You will not be able to reach parts of the colection Hagblom-Foto for a couple of months. 

Requesting images

If you are looking for images not digitally available, please contact us, so we can help you find images in our collections. The items will be available in the Special Collections Reading Room after 12.00 the following weekday.
