About the Library: 

The Digital Research Library (DRL) plays two important roles at the University of Pittsburgh by:

  • Digitizing material from the library’s archives and special collection holdings, and
  • Making that material available on the Web for global and open access.

The DRL has a range of scanners and staff able to digitize photographs, maps, books, artwork, manuscripts, ephemera (such as postcards and flyers), newspapers, music scores, and lots of other material!

We are always interested in working with faculty at Pitt who have digitization needs or are looking to make digitized primary sources available to your students. Come talk to us about primary source material you’d like to see online for research and instruction purposes.

For more information about our services and digital publishing at the ULS, please visit D-Scribe Digital Publishing.

We are located at the Library Resource Facility in Point Breeze. If you’re really interested in knowing more about what we do, checkout our Documentation Wiki.
