National Hot Dog Month!

Posted on: Jun 18, 2013 @ 4:15:44 pm

Did you know that Americans eat enough hot dogs on July 4th to stretch from Washington D.C. to L.A. 5 times – that’s 150 million hot dogs! This is just one of the reasons July is National Hot Dog Month! To celebrate this popular food, we recommend checking out some of our books in the library.

Believe it or not, Rosen has several books devoted to the hot dog for your research & reading pleasure:

If you need more fun-filled ways to celebrate National Hot Dog Month, you might want to check out the site "Hot Dog City" (http://www.hot-dog.org/), which contains hot dog statistics, restaurants, hot dogs in pop culture, and related news.

Chase's Calendar of Events, available in the library, has information about all of July's national celebrations (such as how to best celebrate National Horseradish Month).

Need a book from main campus?

Posted on: Jan 9, 2013 @ 9:47:42 am

Have you ever been working on a paper and found a book or article you'd like to use that is not available at the Rosen Library? If so, you can submit a request through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). The first time you use ILL, you will be asked to take a moment to set up an account (when doing so, make sure you choose Rosen as your pickup location for physical items). After that, it takes almost no time at all.

ILL can deliver a book from the main campus library — or from most other libraries — to you via the Rosen Library. ILL can also retrieve journal articles and deliver them to you electronically in just a few days. So the next time you find a source unavailable at the Rosen Library, use ILL!

If you need additional assistance, you can use our handy Interlibrary Loan guide to help you set up your account and start submitting requests.

Questions? Ask a Rosen Librarian!

Research Tips!

Posted on: Nov 7, 2012 @ 8:48:31 am

With many assignments coming due, the last few weeks of the semester are always a busy time. To help you make it through, below are some tips on making the most of your research time:

  • Use the library's OneSearch, available right on the library homepage, to search for books, articles, audiovisuals, and much more. For tips on using OneSearch, see our OneSearch Guide.
  • Check out the library's Research Guides for research help and tips on all kinds of topics. The library has guides available on different hospitality industries, citation styles, and on using library resources.
  • If you find a book and/or article you’d like to use that isn’t available in the UCF library or through a database, you may request the material through Interlibrary Loan. See our Interlibrary Loan research guide for more help.
  • Don’t wait until the last minute! Researchers often hits roadblocks along the way, and starting early will give you plenty of time to work on Plan B if things don’t work out the way you expected.

If you need further help, Ask a Rosen Librarian!
