Re: Ohio History at Risk

David is correct about the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County being a rich resource as would the Cincinnati History Library and Archives be if it was not closed for the next two to three years for rebuilding the beautiful but decaying Art Deco Union Terminal building where it is housed. The University of Cincinnati Archive and Rare Books Library is also a very rich source for historical materials. It has a very strong Urban Studies manuscript collection that is indispensable for the study of the history of the Greater Cincinnati region in the 20th century.
