These collections display highlights of the resources of the University of Edinburgh Library, principally from within Special Collections. At present we have almost 12,000 images in the system with more being added on a regular basis.

The images that have been created by the University's Digital Imaging Unit are freely accessible to all. We also offer images through commercial services such as Archivision and the Amica Library. Access to these is restricted to students and staff of the University of Edinburgh. This restriction also applies to Edinburgh College of Art collections.

All images are displayed using LUNA software.

Images are grouped by collection but can also be viewed as a single group through the All Collections link.
