New Faces

News & Notes...

Quick Takes:

A handy roundup of some recent news:

  1. Don't forget that we have University Writing Center services on the Rosen campus this semester: encourage your students to schedule an appointment with a University Writing Center consultant by phone at 407-823-2197 or online at
  2. With our new Rapid Delivery service, you can now get the books and audiovisuals you need from the main campus library, faster than ever before! All you have to do is identify the materials you need through the UCF Library Catalog, then submit your requests through Interlibrary Loan. In a day or two we'll contact you to let you know that the materials have arrived at Rosen and are available for pickup.
  3. The UCF Libraries, thanks to an award from the UCF Technology Fee Committee, recently purchased a major new Springer eBook Collection. This collection includes approximately 16,000 books published by Springer between 2005-2010. You can go directly to the Springer eBooks database, or the ebooks can be discovered through normal search mechanisms, such as in the UCF catalog, on the library website, or even in Google Scholar.
  4. The UCF main campus library is hosting a major series of programs and exhibits through April 15th: "Pride & Passion: The African American Baseball Experience." For more information, and a full listing of events and exhibitions, please visit the UCF Libraries' Pride & Passion website.

Update on the Rosen Library Tutorials

We're happy to report that the Rosen Library Tutorials -- a set of self-paced, asynchronous tutorials and accompanying quizzes designed to teach Rosen College students the basics of conducting library research -- were heavily used this Spring semester. The Tutorials were utilized in 9 different class sections, reaching approximately 300 students. And with the new electronic submission feature, we saved paper and returned the Quizzes to instructors faster than ever!

It's not too early to start thinking about your Summer courses.... As you plan for your Summer courses, you can sign up to use our Tutorials through our Library Instruction Request Form, or just stop by and chat with us.
