  • All public users can access the UC Libraries Catalog. However, by publisher requirement, some resources are only available to current UC Faculty, Staff, or Students, or by arrangement as a UC Affiliate.
  • More information on community borrowers can be found at the page, Information For Community Borrowers.

Alumni Access

Off-campus access to library resources is typically restricted by our database licenses to current students, faculty, and staff.  If you are in Cincinnati, you may use materials and databases on-site in the library.
