DSM - 5

Posted on: Dec 16, 2014 @ 9:03:37 am

The UCF Libraries recently added both print and electronic versions of the DSM-5. The DSM-5 is used by health professionals, social workers, and forensic and legal specialists to diagnose and classify mental disorders. The criteria are concise and explicit, intended to facilitate an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings- inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care.



Faculty Library Collaboration

Posted on: Dec 16, 2014 @ 9:00:46 am

The UCF Libraries is pleased to learn that in spring 2015 a UCF course, ENL 4262: Nineteenth-Century British Prose will rely heavily on a new library resource. This class was designed around British Periodicals I & II, a Proquest database rich in primary resource content that was purchased with funds from a successful 2013 technology fee proposal. The proposal was developed by Dr. Anna Jones (English Department), Dr. Peter Larson (History Department) and Michael Arthur, Head of Acquisitions & Collection Services in the UCF Libraries. The collaboration on this successful 2013 proposal was followed in 2014 with five technology fee proposals that involved faculty-library collaboration. The UCF Libraries is pleased to be involved in the process of support the teaching and research mission of UCF and continues to work with faculty in selection of new materials that will have an immediate impact in the classroom. Faculty with ideas for new library resources are encouraged to contact Mr. Arthur at
