Hosted by

UVCON is held at the V&A as part of the V&A Research Institute (VARI), a five-year programme of research projects and partnerships supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. It takes the V&A's pioneering research culture into a new phase that allows the Museum to experiment with new ways of studying, displaying and accessibly storing its collections. VARI will give better access to the V&A's objects and join its experts with academic scholars, practicing artists, designers and makers and members of the general public.

Universal Viewer will be particularly used by two VARI projects:,

Deciphering Dickens, an unparalleled collection of original manuscripts and proofs for most of Dickens' novels;

https://www.vam.ac.uk/info/leman-album-an-enhanced-facsimile
The Leman Album, an 18th-century volume containing Europe's earliest dated silk designs - close to 100 astonishingly vibrant drawings on paper.
