Hillman Library is open to the public and all may use the print format materials within the building, browse the open stacks where our print books and journals are located, or search PittCat+  to locate specific material. Some freely available government documents and D-Scribe, our digital publishing collections are available.

Due to our licensing agreements, only those currently affiliated with the university as students, faculty, or staff may access our licensed electronic format resources.

If you are interested in borrowing books, a Special Borrower's Card can be purchased. Please note that the Special Borrower's Card does not provide access to licensed electronic content.

If you plan to visit, you can find more information on our website including the Hillman Library floor plan, information on various Hillman Library departments and units, and a listing of our hours.
