News & Notes...

Major New Library Instruction Initiative:

One of our goals is to ensure that Rosen College students acquire proficiency in Information Literacy: the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information effectively and ethically. To that end, this Summer we will be developing a set of self-paced, asynchronous Research Tutorials and accompanying Quizzes. The Tutorials will cover all the basics of doing research at the Rosen Library: how to locate a book in the Catalog, how to retrieve an article in a database, how to cite a source in APA style, and so on. The Quizzes, of course, will test the students' comprehension of the material. As we put the finishing touches on these Tutorials, I will be touch with many of you in group or individual settings, encouraging you to assign an appropriate Tutorial to your students and to count the accompanying Quiz as a graded assignment. By doing so, you can rest assured that your students will know how to conduct basic library research for their papers and projects. More details coming soon!

Change in Operating Hours:

Effective this Summer, the Rosen Library will be open Sunday through Friday year-round. In the Summer, this change merely means that we will be open Sunday as opposed to Saturday. We intend to maintain this schedule into the Fall semester and beyond, which does amount to a small hours reduction in the Fall and Spring semesters. The decision to close on Saturday was not made lightly or without a great deal of deliberation. However, faced with an increasingly difficult budget and staffing situation, we were forced to make a change. Ultimately, we believe this change will allow us to devote more resources to our busiest times and to better serve our patrons.
