Digital Research Library
-- or --
The Digital Research Library (DRL) of the University of Pittsburgh's University Library System (ULS) supports the teaching and research mission of the university and serves users through the creation and delivery of Web-accessible digital collections. The DRL also serves as a knowledge resource within the ULS for digital library issues and developments.
From its inception, the DRL focused on creating text-based collections whose digitization and accessibility on the Web would aid the research of scholars, historians, faculty, and students. The DRL has since expanded its tools and capabilities to provide access to photographs, map images, finding aids, manuscripts, postcards, audio-visual material, and bibliographic catalogs of collections.Learn more about our digitization services and capabilities.
The department consists of faculty librarians and production staff, who are assisted by a body of graduate students and interns. The librarians include a coordinator, metadata specialist, and technical manager.
The Digital Research Library provides access to its digital materials for educational and research purposes only. Any other use of these materials, including but not limited to commercial or scholarly reproductions, redistribution, publication, or transmission, is strictly prohibited without written permission.
The Digital Research Library is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
