The Berlin Philharmonic is Back and Online for Free

Berlin Philharmonic logoBy 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).

OhioLINK and Interlibrary Loan Borrowing have resumed

Library users can request OhioLINK materials for pickup at Langsam Library using the OhioLINK catalog or by using the “Search OhioLINK” tab after a search in our local Library Catalog.

To ensure staff safety, all incoming materials will be quarantined for six days before being processed and made available for borrowing.

Using Interlibrary Loan (ILL) library users may request print materials and electronic copies of articles and chapters from books not held by UC Libraries. The pickup location for print materials will be Langsam Library only for west campus.

Reminder. The current west campus pickup location for OhioLINK and ILL is Langsam Library only.

Returning library materials after March 23, 2020

UC libraries are CLOSED. If you have library materials checked out:

Library users are encouraged to KEEP ALL LIBRARY MATERIALS. If you plan to return to campus in the summer or fall, please keep library materials and return them at that time. Fines will not be incurred for items borrowed from UC Libraries, OhioLINK or Interlibrary Loan.

ONLY IF YOU WILL NOT RETURN TO CAMPUS: books, scores, and recordings may be returned to the drop slot outside of the main entrance of Langsam Library (go to the Woodside Garage and take the elevator up to level 4. The library entrance is opposite as you exit the elevator.)

If you have borrowed library-owned equipment (laptops, data projectors, etc.) that you MUST return because you will not return to campus: please contact Public Safety at (513) 556-1111 in advance and arrange to meet an officer. DO NOT LEAVE equipment items outside any library
