About Digital Collections

Our digitization projects range from archival, primary source materials (The Herbert A. Simon Collection, The Andrew Carnegie Online Archive) to searchable digital versions of secondary resources (The Pittsburgh Jewish Newpaper Project, The Posner Memorial Collection). To date the University Libraries has scanned close to 2 million pages of resources, providing 24/7 access to thousands of researchers.

Carnegie Mellon University Libraries have made a best faith effort to assess our responsibilities and risks related to the copyright status of all of the items in our collections, and to make those items available in alignment with best practices as established by information science professionals. Our intention is to make content available for use in research, teaching, and private study. We are always willing to discuss copyright concerns with a rights holder who finds his or her content in our collections. For more information see the ARL Code of Best Practices for Fair Use in Academic and Research Libraries.
