UC Clermont Library usually curates monthly physical library material displays that pertain to timely issues. You’ve probably seen these throughout campus and maybe even checked out materials from one. For these physical displays we lay out books, DVDs, and periodicals relating to a particular topic. While we are off campus, we wanted to share this same information with you, but in formats accessible from home.
The digital display for January and February 2021 provides online materials with information on burn out, mental health, self-care, and more, so that we can learn about how to take better care of our mental health this semester!
