Digitizing Research Collections
The University Library System (ULS) supports the teaching and research mission of the University of Pittsburgh by serving users through the creation and delivery of Web-accessible digital collections. We offer numerous digitization services and capabilities and welcome partnerships with faculty, researchers and regional cultural heritage institutions to digitize significant historical research material for greater access to the research community. This material may reside within the ULS, belong to a faculty member, or to a regional institution.
Examples of such partnerships include:
- Chartres: Cathedral of Notre-Dame with Dr. Alison Stones (History of Art and Architecture).
- Free at Last? Slavery in Pittsburgh in the 18th and 19th Centuries, a partnership with Pitt’s Office of Public Affairs and the Heinz History Center.
- Historic Pittsburgh Image Collections drawn from seven libraries and archives in Pittsburgh.
- University of Pittsburgh Press Digital Editions which provides access to scholarly monographs published by the University Press.
We strive to provide open access to all the material we digitize and make freely available online. It is important to note that copyright of certain materials may prohibit us from digitizing it.
If you are interested in partnering with us to digitize a research collection, please contact us with your idea.
