"Like" our Facebook page!

Show your support for the Rosen Library by "liking" our new Facebook page. We will be promoting the page more widely in the coming months, and we'd love to have some faculty and staff supporters on board from the get-go! Check it out at:

Tutorials & Classes

Does your class have a research component requiring students to utilize books, journal articles, and other scholarly sources? If so, we hope you will consider using a Rosen Library research Tutorial or a face-to-face library instruction session. Just fill out our Library Instruction Request Form or email us and we'll be in touch shortly. Or simply stop by and let us know your plans.

Please note that we request that all instruction and tutorial requests be submitted prior to the start of classes. This allows us time to plan accordingly, and it also allows you time to add the information to your syllabus.

Reserve Materials

Please contact us as soon as possible if you would like to put materials on (print or electronic) reserve for your Summer B course(s).

New Streaming Videos and DVDs

We have significantly increased our audiovisual offerings in recent months. Take a look at the online listings below, or stop by and browse through our offerings in person: you're sure to find something appropriate for use in your upcoming summer or fall courses.

Public Services Librarian Kelly Robinson has created a new guide that highlights all of the Rosen Library's video offerings — including DVD, VHS, and streaming video options. We recently acquired a number of new streaming video titles through our FMG Films on Demand database: these titles are categorized on the new guide, and instructions are provided to help you get started with using them. Without further ado, pleace check out the Rosen Video Collection guide, and let us know what you think!

Kelly also completely updated our DVD & VHS Title List, which categorizes our DVD & VHS offerings. This list also now has clickable links that you can use to access the full catalog record for any title.

Both listings incorporate all of our new DVD titles, including those that were recently purchased with the funds from Rosen Administration and from the Rosen Department of Foodservice & Lodging Management.

New Books, too!

Kelly also recently updated our New Items guide, which highlights new books and DVDs received in different subject areas. Each entry includes a cover image, a short description, and a link to the online catalog for more information. Just use the tabs near the top of the page to navigate among the subjects.
