Given the university’s shift to online operations, we wanted to provide you with updates to the UCBA Library’s services and support beginning today through Friday, January 21st. We will revert to regular spring semester operations on Monday, January 24th.
The UCBA Library facility is closed as of Wednesday, January 5th through Friday, January 21st; however, we do have drop-in hours from 9a-5p Monday-Friday as well as virtual support (see below for options). Hallway signage instructs visitors on how to contact us when they arrive, so that we can meet them at our library staff door (ex. laptop or materials pick-up/returns).
Laptops are available for UCBA students with an initial check-out until March 11th. Students can return and renew the laptop by that due date for the rest of the semester.
Calculators and Course Reserve Materials are available for check-out through January 25th. During this time, we will not be issuing short term loans (e.g. 4 hours, 3 days). Calculators and course reserve materials will be given a due date of Tuesday, January 25th. These items will revert to their designated short term loan period after their return.
Important Reminder: A Bearcat ID or acceptable alternative ID (e.g. driver’s license) is required to check out items.
Virtual Services/Support available Monday-Friday 9a-5p
- General Library Questions or Research Support available at https://libraries.uc.edu/libraries/ucba/ask-ucba.html. Questions that occur outside of service hours will be addressed the following business day.
- Teaching/Teaching Support available at our Teaching Information Literacy Guide. Find asynchronous information literacy content (e.g. videos, activities, worksheets) that can be easily added to Canvas and/or schedule a consultation to discuss course/assignment needs.
