Historic Pittsburgh BETA Release

This website has been released in BETA, which means that it is subject to change with little or no notice. It may be unavailable from time to time as developers make necessary changes and improvements to it. Nonetheless, it does offer improved functionality to access these digital collections and we encourage you to use it and welcome your feedback.

Note that not all of the same content from the original Historic Pittsburgh site is currently available on this BETA site; eventually the BETA site will not only have everything from the original site, but LOTS of new content!

Some new features that we hope you’re excited about include: a much improved image viewer for photographs, texts, maps and manuscripts; the ability to search ALL digitized content regardless of format; the return of relevancy ranking for search results; and the ability to narrow your search results by filtering over subjects, format, source, collection, etc.
