Open Lab @ Hillman is a collaboration between the University Center for Teaching and Learning and the University Library System. Through workshops, class sessions, consultations and trainings, we aim to connect the Pitt community with technology for hand-on making and experiential learning. Drop in to experience virtual reality, learn to 3D print and 3D scan, use a vinyl cutter, or laser cut onto virtually any material. The Open Lab is located in Hillman Library room 132, near the service desk to the right of the main entrance.
The Text & conText Lab, a Center for Creativity/University Library System partnership on the Third Floor of Hillman Library, provides an active environment for the creation, manipulation, and/or disassembly of text.
