Digital Collections

You are only a mouse click away from medieval manuscripts, rare atlases, unique prints and many other treasures.

At Leiden University Libraries Digital Collections you can access our collections from any location in the world.

Under construction

In the course of 2017-2018 our current systems  Digital Special Collections, Collections KITLV Digital Media Library, KIT Colonial Maps and some of the KITLV resources will be phased out. The various collections will be gradually migrated to the new Digital Collections  environment. In case you can't find what you need, please check the Catalogue.
