Games at the Clermont College Library

Free time between classes? Need to relax for a bit? Stop by the Clermont College Library.

We’ve set up a game table, where you can play Jenga, Battleship, or Connect Four.

Playing games helps decrease stress and can improve critical thinking. Spending time having fun may be the boost needed to get back to that research paper or clear your mind to study for a test.

As the semester winds down, take a half-an-hour and enjoy some healthy competition.

Albrecht Dürer: A Reformation-Era Artist @ DAAP Library

DAAP LibraryDisplay Case

Created in collaboration with Richard Schade, Professor of German Studies at the University of Cincinnati, Albrecht Dürer: A Reformation-Era Artist coincides with the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Exhibition, Albrecht Dürer: The Age of Reformation and Renaissance, and the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. The images and text, selected and written by Schade, align Dürer’s creative experience with the experiences of current DAAP students, and summarizes some of Dürer’s most famous works.

Albrecht Dürer: A Reformation-Era Artist will be on display at the DAAP Library until December 3rd.

Albrecht Dürer: The Age of Reformation and Renaissance starts Friday, November 17th, and will be on view until February 11th at the Cincinnati Art Museum.

Two New Exhibitions in the Reading Room

There are two new exhibitions in the Classics Library’s Reading Room:

One is to highlight our Modern Greek collection. Among the gems on display are, for example: Έρμς λόγιος (1811-21), the first journal published in “Modern Greek”; Constantine Cavafy’s Ποιματα with the author’s signature; and Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghikas’ illustrations to Nikos Kazantzakis’ Ὀδύσσεια.

Another exhibition is curated by the classics department and features Mycenaean so called psi, phi, and tau (because of their shapes resembling the Greek letters) female figurines as well as horse and other figurines dated to c. 1400-1200 BCE.
