UN Materials at Ptt
Although Pitt’s University Library System (ULS) became an official United Nations depository only in 1999, we have a comprehensive collection of UNM documents and publications dating back to the UN’s inception in 1945.
The ULS has UN documents in a variety of formats, including print, microprint, microfiche, and CD-ROM. We can also access UN resources freely available on the Internet and through various library subscription databases.
The print, microprint, microfiche, and CD-ROM collections are stored at Thomas Boulevard.
