The UCBA Library and the UCBA Learning & Teaching Center sponsored a RefWorks workshop on Thursday February 9. Randy Roberts (Langsam Library) brought his roadshow out to UCBA for the first time and we had 12 attendees representing a wide range of disciplines such as Nursing, Business, English, and Biology. This was a great example of libraries collaborating to help faculty learn more about one of our many resources! Thanks again Randy!
Whether it’s traveling to a library conference or other professional development opportunity or just exploring the world in our free time, we always love to scope out what’s going on in library land.
It was an easy walk to the Mackinac Island Public Library which has an incredible view of Lake Huron. It’s visiting the Library of Congress — the biggest library of them all! It’s time spent at the World War I Museum Library in Kansas City. Perhaps it’s exploring downtown Seattle and grabbing a picture of some cool architecture at the Seattle Public Library. Maybe it’s exploring history at the Boston Public Library or getting a strategy in place for the life-size chessboard at the Kansas City Public Library. And how about trekking halfway around the world to the beautiful Austrian National Library in Vienna!
We’ve seen some awesome libraries across the country and around the world, but there’s still so much to see! Where will Lauren, Michelle and Christian go next on their world library tour?
As another fall semester gets underway, the UCBA librarians are ready to help faculty with their research needs. Whether it’s discipline-specific, creative, or a classroom-based (e.g. Scholarship of Teaching & Learning) research project, we’re getting you started with a newly updated Faculty Research Guide (guides.libraries.uc.edu/ucba-facultyresearch). You still find those resources that you know and trust, but you’ll also find new grant and data management resources along with contact information for your go-to experts (including your library faculty liaison). In addition, check out UC’s institutional repository – Scholar@UC – as well as OhioLINK’s Digital Resource Commons. As the semester moves forward, we’ll continue to add more resources.
The UCBA Library celebrates Women’s History Month and the many contributions of women from past to present. The display highlights a wide variety of books and media from local to global covering politics, activism and social change, science, art, literature, and business.
Stop in this month and borrow a book or DVD from the display!
Additional resources to explore Women’s History Month:
Library of Congress (also by National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Services, Smithsonian Institution, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, U.S. National Archives & Records Administration)
Beginning of fall semester, a lot of new students on campus…it’s time for the Resource Fair! The UCBA Library is an annual participant in this college-wide event that showcases the variety of support services and resources available to students. This year, library faculty members Heather Maloney, Michelle McKinney, and Lauren Wahman shared cool things about the Library in addition to giving away candy and info geek buttons. And, we were lucky to have one of our student assistants, Stacey Marshall, join us at the table this year!
