Posted on: Feb 25, 2010 @ 5:15:23 pm
Rosen Faculty Lines | Vol. 2, No. 3 | March 2010

Opening Lines...

Up from the sea, the wild north wind is blowing
Under the sky's gray arch;
Smiling I watch the shaken elm boughs, knowing
It is the wind of March.
--John Greenleaf Whittier, The Wind of March

News & Notes...

Rapid Delivery:

Introducing Rapid Delivery... a new service designed to get you the books and videos you need from the main campus library, faster than ever before! Thanks to Rapid Delivery, we'll be getting a courier delivery every day, Monday through Friday. (Until now, we received deliveries only on Tuesdays and Thursdays.) No more waiting for days and days to get your main campus library materials!

All you have do is:

  1. Identify the materials you need through the UCF Library Catalog
  2. Submit your requests through Interlibrary Loan (make sure to select Rosen as your pickup location when you set up your account)
  3. In a day or two, we'll contact you to let you know that the books have arrived at Rosen and are available for pickup.

Exhibit on the African American Baseball Experience

UCF's main campus library will be hosting a major series of programs and exhibits exploring the African American baseball experience and related themes:

"Pride & Passion: The African American Baseball Experience"
March 5 - April 15, 2010
At the main UCF Library, Orlando Campus

The UCF Libraries was selected as one of 50 nationwide sites for this exhibition, which was organized by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the American Library Association and funded through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Baseball fans and history buffs of all kinds will find something to enjoy in the UCF Libraries' six-week series of exhibits and festivities, including exhibits and paintings, talks by baseball scholars, a panel of former Negro League players, and more!

For more information, and a full listing of events and exhibitions, please visit the UCF Libraries' Pride & Passion website.

Rosen Connection:
Rosen's Head Librarian, Tim Bottorff, is heavily involved in the planning and execution of UCF's Pride & Passion exhibition and programming. Tim got his start in librarianship at the National Baseball Library, part of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
