Langsam Library. “The Great War: Poems, Movies, Music and Literature Inspired by World War I” showcases the collections of UC Libraries.

On May 6, the Health Sciences Library along with all UC Libraries will unveil a completely redesigned website.
Available at http://libraries.uc.edu/hsl/ (same URL as current site) the new website is easy to read and navigate with an updated look and feel, an uncluttered homepage with most content viewable without scrolling, new information and streamlined navigation. User-requested features such as the posting of today’s hours, enhanced location maps and a prominent link to Off-Campus Access from the homepage are included in the redesign.
New content around the growing subject of digital scholarship has been added, as well as a website dedicated to the Libraries’ Special Collections. Also featured prominently on the site are links to HSL Research Guides, a Distance Learning guide, workshops, eJournals and frequently used Health Sciences resources.
The tabbed search box, available on the left-side of the homepage and throughout on many secondary pages of the site, will allow users to search for articles, books, journals, databases and quickly and easily.
For those viewing the site on a tablet or mobile device, the redesign is responsive to adjust to individual screen sizes.
The website redesign does not include the Library Catalog or online databases.
Feedback is welcome as the Health Sciences Library website is a work in progress and will continue to develop over the summer.
Watch for more information about the newly redesigned HSL site!

Paul Cauthen, Assistant Music Librarian in the Albino Gorno Memorial Music Library, is the 12th recipient of the Music OCLC Users Group’s Distinguished Service Award.
Paul received this well-deserved award for his contributions to music cataloging over the past 20 years, during which time his cataloging output was cited as being of “exceptional quality” and that his work saved fellow catalogers “literally thousands of hours.” Paul received this prestigious award at the recent MOUG/MLA conference in Atlanta in February.

Morning at the Window
by T.S. Eliot
They are rattling breakfast plates in basement kitchens,
And along the trampled edges of the street
I am aware of the damp souls of housemaids
Sprouting despondently at area gates.
The brown waves of fog toss up to me
Twisted faces from the bottom of the street,
And tear from a passer-by with muddy skirts
An aimless smile that hovers in the air
And vanishes along the level of the roofs.
