ACCESSING ONLINE LIBRARY RESOURCES
- From 10 August 2021, access to licensed online library resources (whether on or off campus) requires user authentication by logging in with a UC username + password and Duo Two Factor authorization.
This means: When you are accessing library resources via the catalog or website, you will be prompted to log in. You need to authenticate even if you have the VPN on. You no longer need to log in via the “Off Campus Access” button, and the “Off Campus Access” page has been eliminated.
More information on accessing online licensed library resources and help with troubleshooting problems is available at the Access Library Resources : FAQs.
- Over the summer, the UC Libraries updated its proxy service. URLs for licensed online resources have been updated. If you try a link and it doesn’t work, scroll down to “Authentic/Proxy Link Troubleshooting.”
If you need to update or generate a link, use the proxy link generator or proxy link converter.
If you have any questions about accessing library resources, contact Dr Jenny Doctor, head of the CCM Library.
After thoughtful consideration, review of usage statistics and consultation, as of Monday, Aug. 23, 2021, the Desk@Langsam will cease lending of equipment, which includes laptops, cameras, projectors, microphones and speakers, etc.
This change is largely the result of decreased usage of the equipment and the service no longer meeting the current and changing technology needs and behaviors of students. All currently checked out laptops and other equipment are due Aug. 31, 2021.
This service change has been added to the Borrow Equipment web page, which includes a list of referrals should users seek another source for technology equipment.
Questions about this change or equipment items currently checked out, should be directed to Ben Kline.
University of Cincinnati Libraries, in cooperation with OhioLINK, is seeking racially/ethnically under-represented candidates interested in an internship with UC Libraries. This position requires a full academic-year commitment (fall, spring and possibly summer semesters) and the ability to work 10-15 hours per week. The internship includes orientation, departmental rotations and working with a mentor. Interns will participate in professional development sessions coordinated throughout the internship.
These paid, resume-building positions offer student interns hands-on experience and a broad introduction to the information studies profession—its purpose, reach and expertise. Students are paired with a mentor to explore and gain valuable knowledge in the field and to develop marketable skills that are extendable to a variety of career disciplines. This program provides experiential learning, valuable training and professional support within a structured work environment. OhioLINK interns around the state will be given the opportunity to network and collaborate via an agreed-upon capstone project, if desired.

The Henry R. Winkler Center for the History of the Health Professions’ ongoing Cecil Striker Webinar Lecture Series continues on Thursday, Aug. 26 at 7:00 p.m. when Jeanne Kisacky presents “What Nineteenth Century Hospital Designers Knew about Minimizing Airborne Transmission and Why It’s Been Forgotten.”
Jeanne Kisacky uses her background in architectural design to inform her historical research into hospital design and how the built environment has influenced health and illness. A grant from the National Library of Medicine supported the writing and publication of her award-winning book, Rise of the Modern Hospital: An Architectural History of Health and Healing. She is currently working on extending her history of US hospitals to the 1960s, through the Hill-Burton era, the Cold War, and Civil Rights.
