The Hillman Library Media Production Equipment & Services Lending Program began in 2015 as a partnership between the University of Pittsburgh Library System and the English and Studio Arts Departments. It has expanded to two distinct equipment collections within our Lending Program, The Hillman Collection and the Course Reserve Equipment.
|Hillman Equipment Collection||Course Reserve Equipment|
|The Hillman Equipment Collection is available to everyone in the Pitt community, including current students, faculty, and staff.||Course Reserve Equipment is available only to those students enrolled in courses with special borrowing privileges. To learn more about Reserve Equipment for your department, see our page on Course Reserve Equipment.|
