You may have noticed that things have changed a bit around the library’s website! Following the redesign of the entire UC Libraries’ 13 website into a more streamline, central website, some of the tools, services and links you previously used may have moved.
Check out the redesigned Libraries website scheduled to launch Thursday, Aug. 15.
Some of the new features and upgrades of the UC Libraries website redesign include:
updated look and feel and an uncluttered homepage
refreshed, user-centric content under the categories of: “Find, Request, Borrow,” “Special Collections,” “Research and Teaching Support,” “Spaces and Technology,” “About” and “My Accounts”
tabbed search box located prominently front and center at the top of the homepage, allowing users to search for articles, books, journals and databases much more quickly and easily
ability to search Research Guides by subject via the homepage
call-outs for Special Collections, Digital Technologies & Innovation and Library as Place
library news and links to information such as the Strategic Plan, Progress Report, Staff Directory and more.
Included in the redesign are all college and departmental (C&D) library web pages from the Archives to Rare Books Library to the Henry R. Winkler Center for the History of the Health Professions, as well as the Clermont College Library and UC Blue Ash College Library web pages.
While the starting web address of the site remains the same – www.libraries.uc.edu, the navigation and content within the site has changed, so update any links or bookmarks you may have to the site. And while great care was taken to be accurate, if broken links or missing content are discovered, contact Team Dynamix.
Update, May 16, 2016, 4pm: The website migration has been completed. Let us know what you think about the new site!
Next Monday (May 16), the Digital Collections & Repositories department will launch a new website. The website will be fully responsive and will work on all devices. Graphics will be prominently featured with less text overall. New features include a card-based collections page that can be filtered by library, subject, or format. We’re very excited to launch this new site and hope our users will find it easy to use.
During the transition on Monday, May 16, you may experience difficulties using the website as we copy new files over and remove old files.

We’re happy to report that our new library website is up and running! This fresh new look allows users to have a more seamless experience transitioning to other UC college libraries, as well as the benefit of using a site tested and designed with library users in mind.
Heads up — the Clermont College Library is migrating to a new website template on Friday, December 11th. While our website’s address won’t change, the site may not be available for your use on Friday on an intermittent basis.
The navigation and content within the newly redesigned UC Blue Ash College Library Website has changed considerably. This short tutorial outlines the new layout and shows you how to easily navigate the site.
