Hillman Library

Among the best research libraries in North America, Pitt's library system ranks in the top 25 in total materials, ahead of such other prestigious institutions as Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, Dartmouth and MIT. The collections housed at Hillman Library are important and historic, including the valuable World War II and Pearl Harbor archive recently donated by Pitt Professor Donald M. Goldstein, the Dick Thornburgh archive, the K. Leroy Irvis archive, the European Union Commission’s depository collection, and the Eduardo Lozano Latin American Collection, one of the finest Latin American collections in the United States. Just last year, users of Pitt's library system visited Hillman Library in person more than 1.7 million times -- and electronically more than 28 million times.
