Did you know that scattered throughout our shelves are a selection of graphic novels and contemporary fiction? How about that the library has access to over 800 databases and we can help you navigate them as you work on your research? Maybe you just need to relax with a film. Did you know the library has a variety of documentaries and feature films available to checkout or stream?

Welcome to my own little nook of the UCBA Library! I’m clearly hard at work, but I’ll happily pause and give you a peek into my space.
Here I am at my desk, awkward as always! Note the variety of teas in the cupboard above me. I drink tea daily & have a tea kettle at my desk. My two most unique blends are birch and moss from when I visited Iceland.
Owls are everywhere in my home and office environments. You’ll probably spot them in several pictures here. I am a big bird nerd, and my Charley Harper 2018 calendar art is also on display.
My love of coffee (and owls) is true.
Random desk items: post cards, Pete the Cat, Hello Kitty tissues, and a solid life reminder.
My photo wall has pics of my family & travels. I spent two months backpacking through Europe solo, & those photos inspire me to keep exploring. Can you spot Cincinnati superstar, Fiona the Hippo? I met her during my last job with the Cincinnati Zoo.
I absolutely love doodles and try to collect them. Please consider drawing one on a post-it for my meager collection!
The owl theme continues with my two office mugs. In the background is an image of a rat riding a cat in outerspace with a taco.
These feathers that I keep on my desk are from an African Penguin I met once. After giving him a few gentle pets on his back, he clamped his beak and teeth (yes, teeth!) onto my right thigh. To this day, I have a scar and these feathers as a memento.
