At Hillman Library
Hillman Library periodically hosts free public displays of treasures from the University’s collections.
Among the permanent items on display at Hillman are the Audubon Exhibit Case, featuring original prints from John James Audubon's The Birds of America (Pitt owns one of only 120 compete sets of Birds of America known to exist; it's considered to be the single most valuable set of volumes in the ULS collections), and an interactive display featuring the Gold Medal won by Pitt alumnus and track star John Woodruff at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.
The Cup & Chaucer Café on Hillman's ground floor serves coffee and expresso drinks, pastries, and sandwiches, and stocks popular reading and bestsellers for visitors to borrow. The café's Emerging Legends Concerts Series features free performances by musicians playing everything from blues to jazz to folk-indie and world music.
