Digital Collections Across the KU Campus

About

KU Libraries has designed the KU Digital Collections as a showcase and point of connection for digital projects and collections from disciplines across the KU campus. Digital research, online journals, scholarly publishing, and image collections are all represented. Most of these collections are freely available; a few are only available to current KU employees and students.
