Asian Student Welcome

librarian and studentsSponsored by the Office of Ethnic Programs and Services, the UC Libraries were one of the welcoming partners for the 2015 Asian Student Welcome on August 22, 2015. The Global Services Librarian, Hong Cheng, from the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) Library greeted new faces from China, India, Korea, and many other countries. Your voices are heard, international bearcats! Not only can you check out stacks books from any UC library and return to any library, the library also helps get a copy if none of the libraries has it via OhioLink. Jobs in the library? Yup, and the link is here.

Students starting classes Monday will be met with construction and an enhanced classroom in Langsam Library.

Once completed, the renovations will provide more collaborative, flexible and comfortable work spaces to do research and to study in Langsam, as well as offer improved access to enhanced technology. Work began this summer with the renovation of the Langsam classroom 462 and will continue throughout the fall semester on the fourth floor of the library.

As a result of the construction, The Desk@Langsam (the main service desk) has been moved to just beyond the main staircase. Signs and way finding lead users to the temporary desk location. All other Langsam Library services and spaces remain open and available for use at this time.
