Research Help

Rosen Librarians are always happy to provide assistance locating materials, performing research, utilizing UCF's vast array of electronic resources, or with any other kind of library need you may have.

OneSearch is a great place to start looking for books, articles, DVDs, and more. If you are looking for just books and DVDs, you may want to use the UCF Library Catalog. For more in-depth research and articles, try the Hospitality Databases subject page. For more assistance, see our Research Help page or contact us.

Study Rooms

The Rosen Library offers three group study rooms equipped with computers and blu-ray players. While individuals may use the rooms on occasion, groups will be given priority over individuals. All Library policies (e.g., no meals, beverages in sealed containers, cell phones set on vibrate, etc.) apply to study rooms as well.

The study rooms are generally available on a first-come, first-served basis, but available rooms may be reserved 24 hours in advance. Those wishing to use the rooms for extended periods of time are also advised to make a reservation. Study rooms can be reserved for a maximum of four hours, once per day. To check on room availability and to make a reservation, stop by the circulation desk or call 407-903-8100.
