As another fall semester gets underway, the UCBA librarians are ready to help faculty with their research needs. Whether it’s discipline-specific, creative, or a classroom-based (e.g. Scholarship of Teaching & Learning) research project, we’re getting you started with a newly updated Faculty Research Guide (guides.libraries.uc.edu/ucba-facultyresearch). You still find those resources that you know and trust, but you’ll also find new grant and data management resources along with contact information for your go-to experts (including your library faculty liaison). In addition, check out UC’s institutional repository – Scholar@UC – as well as OhioLINK’s Digital Resource Commons. As the semester moves forward, we’ll continue to add more resources.
The UCBA Library celebrates Women’s History Month and the many contributions of women from past to present. The display highlights a wide variety of books and media from local to global covering politics, activism and social change, science, art, literature, and business.
Stop in this month and borrow a book or DVD from the display!
Additional resources to explore Women’s History Month:
Library of Congress (also by National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Services, Smithsonian Institution, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, U.S. National Archives & Records Administration)
Beginning of fall semester, a lot of new students on campus…it’s time for the Resource Fair! The UCBA Library is an annual participant in this college-wide event that showcases the variety of support services and resources available to students. This year, library faculty members Heather Maloney, Michelle McKinney, and Lauren Wahman shared cool things about the Library in addition to giving away candy and info geek buttons. And, we were lucky to have one of our student assistants, Stacey Marshall, join us at the table this year!
UCBA Librarians participated in the second annual UC Serves event held on Friday, May 8, 2015. This year’s activities began with the UC Serves Kick-Off event
where participants learned more about their projects, met team leaders and other team members and picked up t-shirts and goodie-bags.
It’s that time of year…incoming freshman are here!
The UC Blue Ash College Orientation is in full swing with hundreds of new students coming to campus this summer. Advising, UC ID’s, registration, campus tours, and more are all part of Orientation and the UCBA Library is a proud participant at every program this summer. Campus tours include a visit to the Library where students learn about the 5 Cool Things to Know.
The NEW Faculty Research guide is now available! It’s a great starting point for faculty conducting discipline-specific or scholarship of teaching & learning research. From setting up research alerts to search tools to evaluating journals for potential publications, the UCBA Library has got you covered!
