Engineering a global librarianship
January 17, 2020
The University of Cincinnati Libraries is an integral partner in the university's efforts to achieve its core mission of teaching, research and community engagement. Through the work of our Strategic Plan, and with the realization of our mission and vision, we support the platforms of academic excellence, urban impact and the innovation agenda outlined in the university's #Next Lives Here strategic directions.
UC Libraries preserves and provides access to special collections and the scholarly and historical record of the university, including archival as well as born-digital content and datasets.
UC Libraries creates and utilizes learning tools and research platforms that transform the user experience and the creation of new knowledge.
As the intellectual hub for students and faculty, libraries provide engaging digital and physical spaces that spark inquiry, support analysis and ignite discovery.
With 4.3 million volumes and access to thousands of electronic resources available 24/7 through our online library catalog, UC Libraries' virtual and physical locations offer resources for everyone. UC Libraries includes the Walter C. Langsam Library, the Archives and Rare Books Library, the Donald C. Harrison Health Sciences Library, and eight college and departmental libraries serving constituents in applied science, architecture, art, biology, chemistry, classics, design, education, engineering, geology, mathematics, music, physics and planning.
