Browse our NEW BOOKS shelf in the Knowledge Commons for some recreational reading over Spring Break. The bookcase on your left as you approach the Research and Information Desk is devoted to showcasing our latest academic book purchases. Come by or check the website to see what we have, and feel free to take as many as you like–everything on display here is available for immediate check out: just take your selections to the circulation desk.
***NEW*** Now you can peruse the New Books Display website to read synopses of each book on display! Titles link directly to our online catalog so you can find similar titles and check availability before your visit.

One of UCF’s most interesting electronic resources is CQ Researcher. Its readable reports on political, economic, health, human rights, and many other topics always include a pro-con section, and key statistics, along with a timeline. CQ‘s most recent report on virtual reality is no different: did you know that reality-based game sales will hit $12 billion in 2018, or that the chronology for virtual reality begins in 1838? Click on databases on the Libraries’ front page to search for CQ Researcher and select it from the list of databases beginning with “C”. If you can’t think of a topic for a paper or research project, this is a great place to start!
