Information regarding support, services and resources for UCBA faculty and staff can now be found on Bearcats Landing (UC login required). Please be sure to update your bookmarks.
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

As we prepare for the holidays and the colder temperatures, please help those in need stay a little warmer this winter by donating to our Spread the Warmth Drive benefitting Blue Ash and Montgomery neighbors.
Look for our donation bins in Muntz, Walters and Progress halls or drop your donation at the UCBA Library Information Desk.
Please donate new or gently used Coats and Fleece Jackets (no sweaters or other kinds of sweatshirts) in any size from infant to adult.
Donations will be collected from November 1 – November 21, 2021.
Have Library Fines? Bring your donations to the UCBA Library Information Desk and each donated item will count toward waiving up to $20 in library fines ($10 per coat or fleece jacket).

As contemporary labor movements continue to dominate the news cycle, UCBA library student worker, Sarah Horton, has pulled together a collection of titles that covers the history and recent events in US labor movements. To learn more about how we got from then to now, please visit our display located just inside the entrance to the library.
