About us

On Explora, serialized stories based on the holdings and services of ETH Library are told. Contents spanning collections and archives are recombined and presented as a story. Services become also more comprehensible in story form.

With the novel presentation of ETH Library’s services, Explora is geared towards people who are interested in art and culture, but also members of ETH Zurich.

The images displayed from ETH Library’s holdings are freely accessible and can be downloaded in high resolution and re-used. Explora invites you to explore, discover new things and get to know other ETH Library platforms.
