225 Stories to Celebrate: Pitt Hosts Global Connections

Issue Date: 
September 24, 2012

Students and scholars enjoy a window into global economics and politics, thanks to an archive on the creation of the European Union (EU) and several special collections.

Pitt’s Hillman Library houses such special collections as the Eduardo Lozano Latin American Library Collection, a regional, national, and international resource center that serves as the sole Latin-American resource in Western Pennsylvania; and the East Asian Gateway Service, which provides research supplies for China scholars in the United States as well as an extensive partnership between 16 academic or research libraries in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan.

Based on the strength of the University’s European Studies Center and European Union Center of Excellence, Pitt was selected to host the EU Delegation Collection, which includes more than 16 million pages of publications and documents produced by the European Economic Community, European Community, and EU from the early 1950s through 2004. Pitt’s University Library System is putting the entire collection online.
