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!

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.

One a recent July 4th holiday visit to Chicago, Michelle McKinney, UCBA Reference and Web Services librarian, made a brief stop at the Harold Washington Library Center (HWLC) of the Chicago Pubic Library (CPL). The main branch of CPL is located on 400 S. State Street, Chicago, IL 60605 in the South Loop. The building is a site to behold. It is 10 stories high, 756,000 square feet, and takes up a full city block. Here are just a few photos from Michelle’s all-too-brief visit. Follow the links at the end of the post to learn more about the Chicago Public Library and the Harold Washington Library Center. Continue reading
