Opening Lines...

"'In the summer term,' Professor Trelawney went on, 'we shall progress to the crystal ball -– if we have finished with fire-omens, that is. Unfortunately, classes will be disrupted in February by a nasty bout of flu. I myself will lose my voice. And around Easter, one of our number will leave us forever.'"
--Professor Sibyll Trelawney, in Divination class, in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

News & Notes...

Citation Searching

Citation searching seems to be a hot topic these days. Main campus Reference Librarian Ven Basco has compiled a useful guide, outlining the nature of the topic and some of the major tools for doing such analyses (click on the tabs near the top of the page): Citation Analysis Tools.

Main Library 2nd Floor Redesign

If you occasionally travel to the main campus, you may notice some unusual activity in the main UCF Library this summer. The 2nd floor (the main floor on which you enter the building) is being transformed into a Knowledge Commons, a dynamic space that brings together learning and technology, study and research, academic support, print and online resources all in one place for students and faculty. Construction will continue all summer, with the new space scheduled to open just in time for the Fall semester. The project is partially funded by the 2009/2010 Student Technology Fee. For more information, check out the main Library's Knowledge Commons website.
