Print Periodicals Routing Available Again on UC Clermont’s Campus!

Clermont College Library is excited to announce that we are bringing back periodicals routing!

This means that when print periodicals come in, we will first circulate them through inter-office mail to those on the routing list. When everyone on the routing list is done reading the magazine and passing it on, it will be returned to the library and go onto the public shelf.

Please fill out this form to indicate which periodicals you would like routed to you, if any.

Feel free to contact our Collection Services Manager, Emily Wages (wageser@uc.edu), with any questions.

UC Clermont Library Digital Display – January and February 2021

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!
