The UCBA Library and Student Nurses Association teamed up again this year to coordinate the UCBA Holiday food drive. We surpassed last year’s donations with over 400 pounds of food items collected to help our neighbors in need during the holiday season. All donations were delivered to the Freestore Foodbank. For more details, check out the UCBA College blog post at:
The UCBA Library faculty hosted the UCBA November Faculty Social on Tuesday, November 15th as a follow-up to our first “Whiteboards and Wine” spring faculty social event. We indulged in excellent refreshments and conversation in the Learning & Teaching Center and also had the pleasure of introducing a special guest and new colleague from UC Libraries, Mark Konecny, Scholarly Communications and Digital Publishing Strategist.
It was a perfect excuse to gather and relax with colleagues as we approach the last weeks of the semester!
The UCBA Library and the UCBA Student Nurses Association are teaming up again this year to sponsor the UCBA Holiday Food Drive from Monday, November 14th through Friday, December 9th. Look for donation bins in Muntz Hall Lobby and Commons, and Walters Hall Lobby. Have library fines? For each non-perishable food item brought to the UCBA Library Information Desk, $1 will be subtracted from library fines (up to $5).
UCBA librarians Lauren Wahman, Michelle McKinney and Heather Maloney (accompanied by her family) showed up bright and early to represent the library at the 4th Annual UCBA Blue Ash Dash 5K for Scholarships. The rest of the library staff opted for the ‘sleep in’ option bringing the department to 100% participation. $52,000 was raised at this year’s event with proceeds going to scholarships for students at UC Blue Ash.
