This is the big, classic library of the city -- big cool-looking building, vast archives, etc. They are somewhat computerized, and have branches all over the city.

The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh on Forbes Avenue is the biggest of the Carnegie libraries. It's near the Carnegie Mellon and University of Pittsburgh campuses. The library itself is a work of art because of it's architecture. The library has a few floors with many books. It has internet access and everything that you'd expect at a major library. It's connected to the Museum, so you can walk next door to see the museum if you are in the mood.

PROS: A huge library with a lot of resources
CONS: Parking in oakland is not usually convenient, although they do have big lot

The CLP has an incredible selection of books, but good luck finding them! There doeesn't seem to be a very logical organizational system, and many of the employees are helpful, as they direction you "over there" to find a section of books. It's great if you need a special book, otherwise, I"ll stick to my local library.

Also, be prepared to pay for parking.
