As of December 20, 2011, there is no access to the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) Library via the 8th floor of Rhodes Hall. Hallways on this level are closed through Summer 2012, due to renovations to build the CEAS Learning Center. The Learning Center will serve as a “home” for hundreds of first-year CEAS students, and will neighbor the CEAS Library! Learning Center construction details at http://secs.ceas.uc.edu/about-us/rhodes-renovation.
How do you access the CEAS Library (8th floor, Baldwin Hall) from the Rhodes lobby? Take the elevator up to the 7th floor of Rhodes, make a sharp right turn as you exit the elevator, then proceed down the hallway toward Baldwin Hall (in the direction of Clifton Avenue). Use the stairs or elevator nearest to Baldwin Hall to reach the 8th floor.
To avoid steps, enter the adjacent Engineering Research Center (ERC) building and take its elevator to the 6th or 7th floor. Cross the bridge into Rhodes Hall and proceed down the hallway toward Baldwin Hall as described above (you will pass by the Rhodes lobby elevator). Use the stairs or elevator nearest to Baldwin Hall to reach the 8th floor.
There is no change in direct access to the CEAS Library from either Baldwin Hall or Zimmer Hall.
Contact the CEAS Library at 513-556-1550 or email Ted.Baldwin@uc.edu for further assistance.
