UC Libraries is proud to be a part of the Provost’s Strategic Hiring Opportunity and Dual Career Assistance programs. In a recent article in UC Magazine, library employees Bill McMillin, Tiffany Grant, Don Jason, Hong Cheng and Robert Freeman are included in a feature of new employees that “have joined UC with support from Provost Office funds dedicated to recruit the best and brightest in their fields as well as to attract and support faculty who have partners who can bring their own academic expertise to campus.” You can read all about it online in UC Magazine.
On July 26, 1990 President George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law. Following laws like the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the ADA is an “equal opportunity” act for people who have disabilities. The law guarantees that people with disabilities have equal opportunity to participate in normal American life. It allows people with disabilities to be employed, buy goods and services, and participate in government programs without discrimination.
This year Langsam Library and the Health Sciences Library are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the ADA with a display. The display provides information about the ADA and how it helps college students. The display shows that 11% of Undergraduates and 9% of Graduate students have disabilities, while 80% of students with disabilities choose not to disclose, thus reinforcing the importance of the law.

An international team of archaeologists led by University of Cincinnati researchers recently discovered a Bronze Age warrior’s tomb in southwestern Greece filled with more than 1,400 objects: jewels, weapons and armor, as well as bronze, silver and gold vessels. The unusual find is celebrated in the New York Times.
In late 2012, the University of Cincinnati Libraries was awarded a Scholarly Communications and Information Technology Program planning grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to define and describe the key skills and competencies required to support a robust digital scholarship program. The project’s findings have now been published in a report titled “Building Expertise to Support Digital Scholarship: A Global Perspective.”
