ULS, University Press form digital partnership

The University Library System (ULS) and the University of Pittsburgh Press have formed a partnership to provide digital editions of Press titles as part of the library system’s D-scribe digital publishing program. Thirty-nine books from the Pitt Latin American Series now are available online. Ultimately, most of the Press’s titles more than two years old will be provided through this open access platform.

The D-scribe digital publishing program includes digitized materials drawn from Pitt collections and those of other libraries and cultural institutions in the region; pre-print repositories in several disciplines; the University’s mandatory electronic theses and dissertations program, and electronic journals during the past eight years. Sixty separate collections have been digitized and are accessible at

The collection eventually will include titles from the Pitt Series in Russian and East European Studies; the Pitt-Konstanz Series in the Philosophy and History of Science; the Pittsburgh Series in Composition, Literacy and Culture; the Security Continuum: Global Politics in the Modern Age; the History of the Urban Environment; back issues of Cuban studies, and other scholarly titles.

The digital editions can be viewed at and through the Press web site at
