Congrats to all the Bearcats who graduated and to those who celebrated surviving another semester! Now that it’s summer time, you might be looking for some fun things to do. I can tell you about one that’s right in your backyard…well, park. Once again the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company will offer their free Shakespeare in the Park summer series. It opens July 14th and runs through September 4th. Each year Cincinnati Shakes prepares two shows for their various performances at parks around the city and Hamilton County. This year’s shows are Romeo and Juliet and The Merry Wives of Windsor. Past years included A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Macbeth, and Much Ado About Nothing. The official schedule hasn’t been posted yet, but it will be coming soon! You can check their website for updates. Continue reading A Very Shakespeare Summer

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:
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.
Please see message from campus maintenance below. We will be closing Langsam completely on Wednesday night at 10pm and reopening on Thursday at 8am, due to the water being shutoff overnight for maintenance.
The University of Cincinnati will be closed on Monday, May 29, 2017 in observance of Memorial Day. The library will resume regular hours on Tuesday, May 30, 2017. For more information and additional holiday closures, visit the UC Blue Ash Library Hours.
Ever wonder what people are playing while they are practicing the keyboards in Langsam and CCM Libraries? Jay Sinnard, manager of the Student Technology Resources Center, did so he asked one student if he could listen in.
I think we can all agree he is very talented. Another selection…
A collaboration between UC Libraries and the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), the keyboards are open to anyone wanting to play on a first come-first served basis, but bring your own headphone as they are required.
OSF for UC — osf.uc.edu — is UC’s portal for students, faculty, staff and others who need to manage project files and documents. Sign-in is easy – go to osf.uc.edu, sign in, choose University of Cincinnati, then your UC 6+2 Central Login.
Through OSF, project teams can assign collaborators (internal and external to UC) and share project documents at a granular level (only share what you want, with whom you want). Projects managed through the OSF are private by default. Any or all parts of a project can be made public as desired or required by grant funders or others.
