CEAS Library Floorplan

Quiet Reading Room

Quiet Reading Room

This room provides quiet individual study. The room houses current journals and   senior design reports. This historic and beautiful room was the site of the original Engineering Library (now part of CEAS Library). The murals were a gift of the 1916 Class of Civil Engineering, and depict major feats oengineering. The murals were cleaned and conserved as part of the 2001 Baldwin Hall renovation, through a generous gift of Civil Engineering Professor Emeritus James Morand and his wife Diane Morand.

   Senior Design Reports

Senior design reports describe capstone research projects performed by CEAS undergraduate students in selected programs.  Print copies of reports date from 2011 and earlier, and are organized by degree, year, then author last name.  Reports dating after 2011 are available online.

Senior design reports do not circulate. For more information on access, see Applied Science Senior Design Reports.



Current Periodicals

Current periodicals (print format) are in the Quiet Reading room, and are shelved alphabetically by title. Many current journals are only received in electronic format. Journals held by UC libraries in paper and electronic format may be found using the UC Library Catalog. Current journal titles received in print have check-in records in the UC Library Catalog that show which issues have been received by the library.


Historical Collection

The Quiet Reading Room also contains a Historical Collection of engineering & technology books dating before 1940 or that cover important historical aspects relating to the library, such as information on Thomas Edison (a library user while working as a telegraph operator in Cincinnati).
