Rosen Faculty Lines

Vol. 3, No. 10 | October 2011

Opening Lines...

All things on earth point home in old October: sailors to sea, travelers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of the hounds, the lover to the love he has forsaken — all things that live upon this earth return, return.
~ Thomas Wolfe (1900-1938)

News & Notes...

Cross Your Fingers

UCF Libraries recently submitted a Technology Fee proposal. The proposal, if approved, would have three major components: 1.) a redesign of the Rosen Library's instruction room, turning it into a collaborative workspace with computers and various seating options, 2.) the addition of electrical outlets in the main room of the Rosen Library, and 3.) the addition of several portable computing devices (iPads and netbooks) for student checkout. Technology Fee proposals are evaluated as part of a competitive submission process. We should hear in November or December whether the proposal will be funded. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

By the Numbers

It's always interesting to reflect on all that has been accomplished during the past year. In fiscal year 2010-2011:

  • The Rosen Library welcomed 126,695 patrons through the front door
  • The Rosen Library website received 320,652 hits
  • Rosen librarians conducted 48 library instruction sessions, reaching 1,650 students
  • Rosen Library staff answered 4,825 questions
  • Rosen Library staff circulated library materials 9,457 times

Spread the Word

The University Writing Center (UWC) is offering writing assistance on the Rosen campus again this semester. Please encourage your students to take advantage of this service. You might even consider offering extra credit or other incentives to visit with a UWC consultant.

Writing experts will be available, in the Rosen Library study rooms:

  • Tuesdays 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. and 2:30 - 4:15 p.m.
  • Wednesdays 10:30 a.m. - 1:15 p.m.

Students can visit (and click on the TutorTrac logo) or call 407-823-2197 to set up an appointment. Walk-ins without appointments will also be helped, if availability permits. The UWC also offers remote consultations by phone, chat, or Adobe Connect.
