Opening Lines...

It is a glorious fever, that desire to know.
--Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873)

News & Notes...

New Faces
Please join us in welcoming our new part-time Adjunct Librarian, Sonjia McSween. Sonjia, taking over the position vacated by Jamie Conklin a few months ago, will be working mostly daytime hours Monday through Thursday. She has a Master's in Library and Information Science (MLIS) from Florida State University and brings some excellent skills to the position. You may see her working with students in reference encounters and library instruction sessions, updating our webpages and research guides, assisting in developing the collection, and otherwise contributing to our service and research mission. Say hello next time you're in the library!

Database Spotlight:
An occasional feature wherein we highlight one of our especially useful databases...

The Dissertations & Theses Full Text database is a real boon to faculty, graduate students, and other advanced researchers. You can search for U.S. dissertations and theses by author, title, school, year, or discipline. Full text is available for most dissertations from 1997 forward. From 1980 forward, citations include a 350-word abstract. Citations for master's theses from 1988 forward also include 150-word abstracts. If you have any questions about using Dissertations & Theses Full Text (or any other databases), just Ask a Rosen Librarian!
