The field of engineering is growing, so is the need of using relevant information, especially from the UC Libraries. Librarian Hong Cheng created this one-stop site for faculty and graduate students who are looking for the latest resources about this topic. Librarians at the CEAS Library are also available for teaching information literacy skills to meet your students’ research needs.
This post comes to you from UC Clermont student Scarlett Hauser. Scarlett works in the Clermont College Library and wanted to share some of her perspective on life as a student during the COVID-19 pandemic. For UC Clermont students that haven’t made a trip to campus, Scarlett shares some of what she has seen and how courses have gone.
Here are Scarlett’s thoughts:

By using Berlin Philharmonic Digital Concert Hall, UC patrons can experience the complete 2020/21 season of the Berlin Philharmonic online. There are two access options: “Direct Access” or to “Login” by creating a personal account that will enable additional features like playlists and email notifications. BOTH OPTIONS WORK for UC patrons. When off campus, remember to use the “proxy” address URL from the CCM Library homepage (under Online Video). Check out the 2020/21 season brochure to see what’s coming up (hint: there’s a live concert this Friday Aug. 28 at 1:00pm).

Off Campus Access
UC Libraries have made a change to accessing resources from off campus this summer. Instead of the library login, you will now access resources through the standard UC login screen and DUO authentication. This means, if you’ve already logged into a UC resource, like Canvas, you’ll be able to seamlessly connect to library virtual resources.
For faculty and staff: to make sure links to library resources works with single sign on, please remember to use proxied links. Some databases generate a proxy link automatically with their permanent URL, but if you need to generate a proxy link of your own, UC Libraries has created a proxy link generator available at this page. More information on finding a resource’s permanent link and adding the proxy is available at this site.
