Digital Collections launched on 14th July 2021 and is the new gateway to digital objects and collections at UAL, held across the University’s archives, museum and libraries.  It allows for virtual browsing of a number of items from UAL Collections. Digital Collections presents these digital objects for discovery and use as a resource for teaching, learning and engagement at UAL and beyond.

Many of these digital objects have not been available online before now, or were only accessible physically, in one of UAL’s archives, museum or libraries.  Digital Collections brings together a selection of UAL’s digital objects, for the first time.   


Digital Collections brings together digital objects and collections so that you can discover them and be inspired by them; finding connections across collections and objects that you might not have known about before.  


A filtered search lets you discover objects of interest to you, eg. by medium such as glass, ceramics, wood.  Or discover objects by one creator in many collections.  When you search, Digital Collections will show you related works that might also interest you.
