You will find digital objects held across UAL's archives, museum and libraries.    

This includes digital objects created from our physical collections, created through digitisation or photography. Also, born-digital objects, such as digital artworks, film and moving image recordings, and more.   

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.  

We can’t digitise everything due to legal, technical and other constraints.  These digital objects are a small proportion of our entire collections, which we continue to manage and make available at our physical sites.  

You will find further descriptions of our collections in the LibraryMuseum and Archive catalogues.
