This post comes to you from UC Clermont student Scarlett Hauser. Scarlett works in the Clermont College Library and wanted to share some of her perspective on life as a student during the COVID-19 pandemic. For UC Clermont students that haven’t made a trip to campus, Scarlett shares some of what she has seen and how courses have gone.
Here are Scarlett’s thoughts:
UC Clermont’s newest librarian, Kathy Ladell, has published a new book chapter:
Ladell, K., Chernaik, A.G., Craig, A., Nelson, E., Shelly, A., & Swatscheno, J. (2020). Open Illinois: Supporting educational resources as a consortium. In D. Chase & D. Haugh (Ed.), Open praxis, open access: Digital scholarship in action (pp. 195-208). ALA Editions.
Author J.D. Vance will be speaking at UC Clermont in Krueger Auditorium on Friday, May 19 at 7pm about his #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, Hillbilly Elegy.
This special event is sponsored by Clermont County Public Library and is free and open to the public. No RSVP required.
Mr. Vance writes about his Appalachian, working-class roots and his personal journey – from Middletown, Ohio to the Marines to Yale Law School. The Wall Street Journal calls Hillbilly Elegy “a beautiful memoir but it is equally a work of cultural criticism about white working-class America….[Vance] offers a compelling explanation for why it’s so hard for someone who grew up the way he did to make it…a riveting book.”
No RSVP is required for Vance’s 7pm speaking engagement, but seating is first-come, first served.

Clermont College Library offers many great online databases, including LexisNexis.
LexisNexis is useful for all college students and educators, starting with a simple but powerful search box that allows quick results:
Hot Topics Links will help you to get to current news and topics quickly:
- Search the News, both in the United States and abroad. Comprehensive coverage from international and national publications.
- Look up a Legal Case, from the Supreme Court, Federal Court, and U.S. District Courts including U.S. Bankruptcy and U.S. Tax Courts
- Get Company Information from authorities such as Standard & Poor’s, Hoover’s and SEC filings, and stock reports.
The Advanced Options can help you locate the specific articles or documents you are looking for. The navigation will help you further narrow the results down by date, name, publication title, geographic location and more–until you find what you need.
LexisNexis Help offers online tutorials through its YouTube channel.
Use the Off-Campus access when you are not on a UC Campus.

Quilts, lace tablecloths, clothing, and other fine household fabrics are now on loan from the personal collection of Dr. Burns. Included in the displays are examples of 19th century handmade lace, international textiles, and a vintage wedding gown.

We’re happy to report that our new library website is up and running! This fresh new look allows users to have a more seamless experience transitioning to other UC college libraries, as well as the benefit of using a site tested and designed with library users in mind.
Looking for something from our old site that you don’t see here? Check out our 90-second library website tutorial, or stop in and ask a staff member for help.
With support from Clermont College Dean Jeff Bauer, we are working closely with the UC Foundation to raise funds for our library’s renewal. In addition to repeating last year’s Quacks for Stacks fundraiser, we’re planning more initiatives for the coming year including A Literary Affair on Wednesday, September 23rd.
This fun event will kick-off the transformation and include a plaque dedication ceremony for former Library Director Fred Marcotte, as well as highlight exciting plans for improvements to the space. For more information about this event or donating to the 21st Century Library Campaign, contact Dana Parker 513- 558-9964 or Mindi Hilgeman 513-558-3420.
