About Digital Collections

This site provides access to over 210,000 digitized or born-digital images in the Koç University collections featuring prints, photographs, slides, maps, newspapers, posters, postcards, manuscripts, streaming video, and more. The collections consist of the materials of the Koç University Libraries and Archives (AKMED, ANAMED, SKL, and VEKAM), Koç University Faculty and Departments, and projects carried out in partnership with the Koç University Libraries.


The Koç University Digital Collections (KU-DC) is a service of Koç University Libraries that supports the activities of the University’s faculty, researchers, students, and staff by preserving, securing, and providing access to digital resources. The KU-DC extends the Libraries’ ongoing mission of preservation and access to information, including research data, scholarly output, digital collections, archival records, and other digital materials that provide enduring value for intellectual inquiry and documentation of University activities. To guarantee the reliability and effectiveness of the KU-DC, the Libraries maintain essential technology platforms and offer expertise in curation, data management, and archival practice.
