Eduardo Lozano Latin American Collection

Hillman Library
University of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh, PA 15260

 

The Eduardo Lozano Latin American Collection was established in 1967 as a result of the creation in 1964 of the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) and the Latin American studies program. The research and studies developed as a consequence created the need of a strong research collection, and the dramatic growth of the library collection has reflected the development in the University of Pittsburgh of one of the world major centers for teaching and research on Latin America.

To support the activities coordinated by the Center of Latin American Studies the University Library System has developed one of the finest Latin American collections in the United States, with extensive library resources and computerized information services.

All the staff of the collection is fluent in Spanish. The Library holdings have been collected systematically and comprehensively through individual purchases and periodic buying trips. Extensive files, including catalogs and addresses, of publishers and vendors of Latin American material are available in the Collection. One of the sources for the collecting of Latin American materials has been the vast exchange program. The Eduardo Lozano Latin American Collection maintains exchange agreements with other libraries, research centers, universities, and governmental institutions all over the world.

In addition to serving the University community the Eduardo Lozano Latin American Collection serves as a local, regional, national and international resource center and clearinghouse for information on Latin America and it is the sole Latin American resource in Western Pennsylvania.

The Eduardo Lozano Latin American Collection is accessible during Hillman Library hours. Check the schedule of Hillman Library hours.
