May 2010: Summer Reads

Rosen Faculty Lines | Vol. 2, No. 5 | May 2010

Opening Lines...

"You see, I don't believe that libraries should be drab places where people sit in silence, and that's been the main reason for our policy of employing wild animals as librarians."
-- Monty Python "Flying Circus" TV show skit

News & Notes...

Instruction/Tutorial Requests

Want to assign a Tutorial for your Summer A course(s)? Just fill out our Library Instruction Request Form and we'll be in touch shortly! Please note that we now require all instruction and tutorial requests to be submitted prior to the start of classes: doing so allows us to plan appropriately, and it also allows you to include the relevant information in your syllabus. Thanks for your cooperation!

Course Reserves

Please contact us before the start of classes if you would like to put materials on reserve for your Summer A or C term courses.

Break Hours

Over break, the Rosen Library will be open 8a-5p, Monday through Friday. Our normal hours will resume on Monday, May 17th.

University Writing Center Update

We received a lot of good feedback on offering space in the library for University Writing Center (UWC) consultations. We believe the partnership will continue in the future -- for example, the UWC is already planning to offer consultations on the Rosen campus in the Fall term.

At this time, the UWC has not decided whether they will be able to offer in-person consultations on the Rosen campus during Summer terms. We will let you know if we hear anything definitive. However, you can still encourage your students to take advantage of their online and phone appointments. Direct students to the UWC homepage for the details:

From the Stacks...

Usually we tell you about scholarly acquisitions and related support services, which are at the heart of our mission. But did you know that the Rosen Library has some "fun" reads, too? The titles below are a good change of pace, suitable for your next vacation or when you just need something "lighter" -- everything from novels to biographies to popular nonfiction. You can also stop by the library to look through our "Browsing Books" to discover even more such titles.

Click on the hyperlinked title for more information about any title.
