UC Libraries

dean wang with students

Study and research are an important focus of student life during college, and students at the University of Cincinnati have access to state-of-the-art resources. UC Libraries supports the undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs of the university by providing a vast array of intellectual materials including collections of books, periodicals, and professional journals, access to electronic databases and full-text journals, state-of-the-art technology, and appropriate research and study areas. In a world where new discoveries are made every day, information resources are constantly changing. In order to meet the needs of students from UC's many colleges and units, UC Libraries must constantly update information resources.

Collections Gifts

The University of Cincinnati Libraries are highly selective when considering donations of books and other library materials because of space limitations. To be considered, gift materials must support the needs of the University or add depth or breadth to existing collections. More information is available online regarding the Gift Policy.
