If you need help finding or choosing library resources for your projects; remember we are all UC. This means you have the same access to the online library resources that the Clermont College Library has access to including:
You’ve started a paper or a project, and gathered a couple of great resources on your topic, but now you need more information. One of Clermont College Library’s excellent resources is the research guide.
Research Guides are easy to find. From the library’s home page, look to the left side of the screen and choose Research Guides. You will be directed to a list of guides. By clicking on one of the topics, you will find tabs that direct you to the type of resource you need. For example, if you were looking for scholarly articles on biology, choose the Biology at Clermont Guide, then click on the Articles tab.

Newsletter, first published in 2002, contains the latest news and happenings from UC Libraries.
UC Libraries is transforming technology, people, space and information resources to “become the globally engaged, intellectual commons of the university – positioning ourselves as the hub of collaboration, digital innovation and scholarly endeavor on campus.”
It is in this spirit of transformation that we are changing the way in which we deliver Source to our readers. The online newsletter will still contain the latest information about the organization, people, places and happenings in UC Libraries, but will no longer be produced in print. By moving Source online, we are able to reach a greater number of readers on various devices – computers, phones, tablets and more.
The site selected the library for recognition because of its “top collections for business research comprised of traditional print resources, government publication materials, e-books, journals and databases. In addition to providing library patrons with research assistance and study space, the library also offers a number of resources for off-campus researchers and distance learners.”
This summer, Langsam Library is a busy place as over 4,000 incoming students participating in UC’s New Student Orientation visit and learn about the Libraries. While here, they engage in activities designed to be both entertaining and informative about the various research resources, assistance and library services they can utilize when they begin classes in the fall.
On May 6, the University of Cincinnati Libraries will unveil a completely redesigned website.
Available at www.libraries.uc.edu (same URL as current site) the new website is easy to read and navigate with an updated look and feel, an uncluttered homepage with most content viewable without scrolling, new information and streamlined navigation. User-requested features such as the posting of today’s hours, enhanced location maps and a prominent link to Off-Campus Access from the homepage are included in the redesign.
UC’s Data Center will be down for two days December 28 & 29 in order to receive a much-needed boost to its backup power supplies. Several major systems including “uc.edu” websites, Blackboard, and VPN access will be unavailable during this temporary outage. The UC Libraries Website, Library Catalog and access to off-campus resources via the proxy server will still be available.
For more on this outage, read the UCIT news release online.
Librarians are used to getting any kind of questions and requests at the InfoCommons. However we were pleasantly surprised when one day student Ashley Kraus approached us with a question about UC Libraries. She wanted to get all kinds of facts and numbers about libraries. Ashley explained that she needed to do a visual project for a class assignment. We were delighted that with any topic in the world to choose from, Ashley chose to demonstrate the value of libraries. Following is more about her work. Continue reading Student Project Shows Value of Libraries
