Assignment Help

Updated on: Mar 27, 2014 @ 8:56:00 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.

  • 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.

Most importantly...ask a Rosen Librarian for help! We are available through chat, phone, email, or in person to help with your research. You may contact us here: http://library.ucf.edu/rosen/askrosen.php

Research Tips!

Posted on: Oct 24, 2013 @ 9:29:26 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!

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).

Any questions? Ask a Rosen Librarian!
