International Students' Library Resources Guide

What's in This Guide

Hundreds of international students come to UC every year. Some of you may have used American libraries before, while others will find out that libraries in the United States are very different from the libraries in your countries. We hope that this online guide will help you understand how the libraries work and what services and resources you can find here.

Welcome in different languages

Welcome to University of Cincinnati and UC Libraries. Our 13 libraries, over 4 million volumes, helpful staff, comfortable individual and group study spaces, and student-centered services can provide you with tools that you need to conduct research and complete your coursework. We hope your time at UC is a successful one and that UC Libraries can be an important partner in your academic career. Please contact us with any questions and needs anytime.

We hope that this Guide will provide all the information you need to feel comfortable at our libraries.

Using the Library explains how things work at UC libraries and what you can expect.

Articles, Journals, and Online Resources and Books, Textbooks, and Reserves tell you how to find materials in our collections and get full text in print or online.

Learning about Libraries provides information about libraries at UC and in the U.S., links to sources on library terms and abbreviations, as well as information about online tutorials, and employment opportunities.

See you at the libraries!
