Thank you for your feedback on our first Learning Commons at the Library survey question! We appreciate learning your thoughts on the physical library and Learning Commons spaces we spent the summer updating.
Our second survey question relating to our updated spaces and partnership with the Learning Commons is now live. We would like to know: What would you change about the second floor of the library?
We’ll collect responses to this second survey question until Monday, October 23rd. You can respond anonymously via drop boxes placed in the McDonough lobby and across from the library’s entrance in Jones or through our online survey form.
UC Clermont Library will be hosting student research workshops throughout the semester on-campus and online.
We here at the UC Clermont College Library spent the summer shifting some stacks and making room to house the Clermont College Learning Commons.

The Learning Commons is coming to the UC Clermont Library! Our 2nd floor has been undergoing transformations to create space to allow tutoring and academic support services to come to the library (pictures below). Beginning July 25, writing tutoring will be available on the library’s 2nd floor with more services available in Fall semester. Check-in for the Learning Commons will be located at the Library’s Information Desk.
The quiet study zone of the 2nd floor should not be impacted by this exciting new addition.
UC Clermont Library curates three monthly library material displays that pertain to timely issues inside the library and in display cases in the Snyder and Edith Peters Jones buildings. You’ve probably seen these throughout campus and maybe even checked out materials from one. For these physical displays we lay out books, DVDs, periodicals, and QR codes relating to a particular topic. We feature all materials available in these physical displays in our digital display so that you can explore what is on our physical display shelves from the comfort of your home, access electronic materials, and request items from each display.
UC Clermont Library shares our newest purchases each month on our New Books Blog. You can browse this month’s newest titles or take a look at previous months. By clicking on the titles, you can see them in the catalog and put a hold request on any you are interested in. There is also the option to subscribe to the new books blog so you never miss a month!
UC Clermont has updated its offerings of iPads. There are now 5 new iPad kits available for UC Clermont students and faculty to borrow. The kits include an iPad, keyboard, Apple pencil, USB-C charger, charging adapter, USB-C to lightening adapter, and carrying case. They can be borrowed from the UC Clermont Library front desk for up to one-week. The included apps are Canvas, OneDrive, Zoom, and more.
If you’re visiting UC Clermont’s 2nd floor this summer, you may notice some strange things: empty shelves, full carts, or moving furniture. We’re hard at work in order to have a new floor layout and new services offered on our quiet study floor by fall semester. We’re confident that the updates will provide an improved student learning experience, so stay tuned!
The UC Clermont College Library is grateful for all of the assistance and hard work provided by our Student Workers. These helpful people can regularly be found behind our information desk, checking out items for you or locating that exact material you need. They also keep all of our books shelved and organized.
As the academic year comes to a close, we want to specifically recognize our two graduating Student Workers: Hannah Johnson and Jeremy Ison. Continue reading
