A Valuable Resource — The UC Blue Ash Library


The UC Blue Ash Library boasts dynamic, quiet study spaces along with incredible resources available to all students. In the 2018-2019 academic year, the library welcomed over 109,000 visitors. Whether you have a project, essay, or presentation due, the library is the perfect place to go to find information and get your questions answered. Last year, the library was able to answer 400 general information and research questions.

Eight study rooms are available and have free access every day after 2 p.m. This is the first semester that students can access the study rooms without a reservation. Keep in mind that from the time the library opens until 2 p.m., you must have a reservation, but after this time, each room is available first come first served! 

National Library week is April 19-25, 2020 and will have many activities for students to participate in, including games, contests, and prizes. One contest will see which student can design the best button to celebrate National Library Week. The winning button will be distributed all over campus. 

Many of the newest titles in the Library can be found on the New Book Shelf located near the entrance to the Library or in the online New Book Guide. The Library also highlights books and DVDs with thematic displays. These spotlight certain areas of the diverse collection like graphic novels, fiction, and over-sized titles. Over 15,000 items were borrowed from the library last year as resources for students. 

The library also creates displays which feature titles for national events such as Black History Month, Banned Book Week, and Pride Month. Information on the library (lowercase when not using official name of the library) displays can be found on the homepage of the library’s website.
