Welcome to the Medieval & Renaissance Studies guide! This guide touches on many high-quality resources available from the University Library System (ULS) to assist you in your research. Library resources--online and in print format--are included, as well as freely available websites. Links to guides on related topics are provided, too.
If you have a question about library resources or services or would like to set up a consultation, we're happy to assist! Contact Clare Withers, Liaison to Medieval & Renaissance Studies, or Patricia Sharp, secondary Liaison to the program. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of MRSP, you may also want to contact a subject librarian from a different department for help with your research.
In addition to resources available from the ULS, nearby libraries offer stong collections in some areas: Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Music Department; Hunt Library, Carnegie Mellon University for history of printing; Gumberg Library, Duquesne University for theology; Pittsburgh Theological Seminary Library for Reformation History
