Library

The Eduardo Lozano Latin American Library Collection at the University of Pittsburgh is one of the top ten Latin American collections in the United States. Housed in Hillman Library, the collection is strong in almost all substantive and geographic areas of Latin America. It has truly exceptional resources on Bolivia and Cuba -- among the world's best -- as well as extensive holdings on Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela. The collection is indexed via a computerized system which is accessible on-line. A full-time Latin American librarian assists users of the collection, supervises the selection and purchase of materials, and periodically issues bibliographies on specific parts of the collection. Over 85 percent of the volumes in this extraordinary collection are in Spanish and Portuguese. An extensive network of exchanges with institutions in Latin America provides the library with a substantial quantity of documents unavailable from other sources. In addition, Hillman Library maintains a set of the Human Relations Area Files (containing monographs, field reports, articles, and references that are especially valuable to students undertaking cross-cultural research and area studies) and is a regional depository for materials from the U.S. Government Printing Office, the United Nations, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The University is a member of the Association for Research Libraries, the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research, the Center for Research Libraries, Latin American Microfilm Project, and SALALM (Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials).
