On Friday, April 25 at 1 p.m. at the Main Library, join Ann Shifflet from the Columbus College of Art and Design for a look at the innovative and expressive paintings and prints of Goya, the genius of the Spanish art world in the 19th century. She'll present Goya as an artist who was ahead of his time and and explain how his work influenced later artists.

News and Announcements
On April 9, after months of preparation, we debuted a new catalog system as we joined the Central Library Consortium! Log into your account or search our catalog using the links on the upper left of our home page. Take some time to explore the many new options available to UAPL cardholders, including saved searches, saved title lists, and personal borrowing history. We've created a how-to guide to get you started with some of the new features. You can also browse over 4.5 million items from the collections of 14 Central Ohio library systems. If you're not already, we encourage you to get into the habit of placing holds on the items you want to ensure the quickest delivery possible to the UAPL branch of your choice.
Be the most knowledgeable person in the room next time the conversation turns to the latest scientific developments, or be able to intelligently argue your point of view next time a science-related debate comes up. Review science concepts like plant biology, cell division or climate change so you can blow away the science category on trivia night. Students, find multiple sources to help you with your next project or get inspiration for entering a Science Fair.
This is all possible with Gale Science in Context.
With Gale Science in Context, researchers, students and general readers can easily find authoritative reference information covering all scientific fields, such as biology, environmental sciences, physics, astronomy and more. You will discover easy-to-understand topic overviews, in-depth encyclopedia entries, current articles from noted science publications and national newspapers, as well as relevant audio, video and online sources in this simple-to-use database. You will also find dictionaries, biographies and experiments.
