Image requests

Gustavianum works continuously to make images of our collections available. As a work in progress, some images have not yet been published, but new photographs can be ordered.


Alvin is a platform for making digitized collections and digital cultural heritage material available. Some of Gustavianum's collections are published and searchable in Alvin. Downloadable images can be freely used for both scientific and commercial purposes.
