Please save yourself the heartbreak of losing your belongings.

It is wonderful that you feel so comfortable in the UCF Libraries, including the John C. Hitt Library. But don't feel comfortable enough to leave your belongings unattended. We want you to leave the building with everything you brought into the building, so keep your belongings with you on campus.

This photo was taken on the fifth floor, on a typical afternoon. It all looks so inviting.

Why the name? Each vessel must carry a piece of fruit.

We did not observe any sunken sailing vessels: hopefully that means that the time in class learning formulae and other engineering tools has been time well spent.

To celebrate the Beatles' rise to worldwide fame, analysts at Thomson Reuters conducted a search of the Web of Science, their premier scientific search and discovery platform, to identify hundreds of pertinent papers devoted to the band, their music, and their continuing influence. From that list, 10 were selected to demonstrate the academic attention the Beatles continue to inspire decades after worldwide Beatles Mania first took hold in 1964, the same year the Web of Science originated.
