Millstein Library - UPG Archives

The UPG campus was founded in 1963. Since that time, the library has collected documents, publications, newspaper articles, pictures and videotapes chronicling the phenomenal growth of this regional campus. Also included in this collection are publications relating to the history of Westmoreland County, particularly Greensburg, the county seat, and the University of Pittsburgh as a whole. Materials in this collection are not on PITTCAT+ (the University catalog) but an online index and outline is available. Patrons must come to the library to view archival material during regular library hours. Please call the library at 724-836-9687 or e-mail. Click here to view the campus chronology.
