Picture Books at Clermont College Library

“Picture Book Month is an international literacy initiative that celebrates the print picture book during the month of November.” (picturebookmonth.com)

Clermont College Library has a small collection of picture books. We collect them primarily for our students in education programs. Of course, they can be checked out by all students, faculty, and staff. Picture books are one of the most valuable tools used to encourage literacy in children. Many of the picture books on our shelves reflect the international literacy initiative.

You can find the books listed below and more by searching our catalog.

Amelia to Zora : Twenty-six Women Who Changed the World 

Good-bye, Havana! Hola, New York! 

The Night Gardener

Peaceful Pieces : Poems and Quilts about Peace

The Mangrove Tree : Planting Trees to Feed Families

Second Floor Selfies at Clermont

Clermont College Library is sponsoring a passive program to direct attention to the second floor of the library. Our second floor is the only quiet study space on campus. And we want students to know about it. Since selfies have become a fun part of society, we’re asking students to visit Clermont College library’s second floor, snap a selfie, then email the photo to penny.mcginnis@uc.edu between October 5-29. We’ll share them on Twitter and Facebook.

A random drawing will determine which student wins a $25 Amazon gift card.

We also welcome administration, faculty and staff to send a photo or post one on Twitter @ucclermontlib. We are using the #SecondFloorSelfie tag on Twitter. Check it out!

New Info Monitor in the Clermont College Library, Courtesy of BLT Department

Friends,

I’m so happy to announce that our new info monitor in the library‘s entryway has arrived.

This monitor, graciously sponsored by UC Clermont’s BLT (Business, Law, and Technology) Department, will help communicate the library’s programs and offerings with our campus community.  Best of all, it’s visible from both the hallway and from inside the library.  Plus, we  think it really brightens up the space.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks, BLT! We <3 our new info monitor.

Let’s make fall 2017 a great semester, together!

Have you ever read fake news? Most of us have.

As a college student writing research papers you want the correct facts. One way to search and find facts is to use the databases available through the library and seek assistance from one of our reference librarians.

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions has some great tips for spotting fake news.

As a reminder to get your facts from reliable sources, we’re giving away FACTS t-shirts.

Student Art Spotlight at Clermont College Library

This semester the library is proud to exhibit the art of Terri Teague.  Ms. Teague, who serves as lab manager for the Fine Arts programs at UC Clermont, has been a friendly fixture around our campus for many years.  In fact, she’s helped to install many of the beautiful art exhibits around our campus, including those in the art gallery and the library.

Ms. Teague’s exhibit includes fourteen individual portraits in a variety of mediums—pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and pastel.  In her artist statement, she credits the gifted teachers at UC Clermont with teaching her to draw and paint, “open[ing] my eyes to a new way of looking at the world.”

Come check out Terri Teague’s work in the library’s Student Art Spotlight through December 2017.  And, as always, we thank Fine Arts faculty Kelly Frigard and Kim Taylor for their dedicated support of the Student Art Spotlight since 2015.

Take our textbooks anywhere

Great news – our textbooks are now available for checkout beyond the library’s walls!

The library purchases core textbooks for Clermont College classes, and they’d previously been available for 2-hour checkout inside the library only.  We’ve relaxed our policy, so now students can take them ANYWHERE for 2 hours. Take your book to class, take your book outside, take your book to Subway – whatever floats your boat.

If you have any questions about our textbooks, please contact the library’s Public Services Manager, Natalie Winland.

Let’s make fall 2017 a great semester, together!

We’re back… See you soon!

 

Friends,

We’re so happy to be able to serve you once again in the Clermont College Library’s typical location, Peters-Jones 120.  And after being temporarily relocated to the Snyder Building to make way for plumbing, mechanical, and electrical upgrades, I like to think we’re also better than ever before!

Let’s make fall 2017 a great semester, together!

Sincerely,
Katie Foran-Mulcahy

6-Week Clermont College Library Relocation This Summer: We’ll See You in Snyder!

The Clermont College Library will be relocated for 6 weeks this summer, from June 19th until August 1st. During this period, the building that houses our campus library, the Peters-Jones Building, will undergo extensive upgrades to its mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.

Clermont College Library

6 week relocation

June 19-August 1

to Snyder 164

 

For those 6 weeks, library services and staff offices will migrate to the Snyder Building.  Our temporary service point (shared with the IT HelpDesk) will be located in Snyder 164. The open computer lab will be located in Snyder 162.  Staff offices will relocate to Snyder 166. The library will maintain some group study and lounge space for students in S164 as well.

The majority of library services will remain available during the relocation, including:

  • library instruction
  • reference assistance
  • textbook and course reserves
  • technology checkout (iPads, laptops, charging cords)
  • holds fulfillment from other libraries

Aside from our physical relocation, there are two major changes I want to make you aware of – library hours and library collections.  Hours will adjust to Monday-Thursday 7:30-5 and Friday 7:30-4 during the relocation, but the lab in S162 will remain open until 7pm. We’ll also be unable to access collections during the closure.  If you need an item, we can still order it from other UC or Ohio libraries.

Please contact me if you have any questions. Please know that we aim to do everything possible to make this temporary relocation as seamless as possible for our campus community.

See you in Snyder,

Katie Foran-Mulcahy
Library Director
