Diamond's Hidden Gems

Diamond’s Hidden Gems – Rosen

Depending on your major, it is possible that you may have to take classes away from the UCF main campus. As a Digital Media student, for example, once you are accepted into the program, most of your degree-classes will be located at the Downtown campus. As students of these alternative campuses, you have access to their respective resources.

I intend to introduce you to each campus library. In this part, we will be discussing UCF’s Rosen campus and the Universal Orlando Foundation Library.

The Universal Orlando Foundation Library, known as the “Rosen Library,” serves the research needs and interests of Rosen College’s students, staff, and faculty. The Library also serves as an information resource center for the hospitality industry in central Florida.

The Rosen Library is a branch of the UCF Libraries and offers the following services:
– Checkout of Books, DVDs, & Course Reserves
– Computers & Technology // Technology Lending
– Printing, Copying, and Scanning Research help
– Study Rooms and Lockers (1-week checkout)
– Exhibits
– Accessibility Services
– Interlibrary Loan

The Rosen Campus Library is closed on the weekends. During the Fall and Spring, the library is open Mondays – Thursdays from 8 am to 9 pm and Fridays from 8 am to 5 pm. During the Summer semester, the library is open Mondays – Thursdays from 8 am to 8 pm and Fridays 8 am to 5 pm. If you have any questions, you can reach library staff by email at or by calling (407) 903-8100.

Exhibit: “Wish you were here: Creating memories of travel and tourism through postcards 1907-1915”

The Exhibit “Wish you were here: Creating memories of travel and tourism through postcards 1907-1915” displays examples of tourism related postcards from the Golden Age of Postcards, a craze when millions of penny postcards were printed, sold, and mailed.

The exhibit was curated by Judy Kuhns and Stephen Ford of the Rosen Library and David Benjamin of Special Collections. It is located at the Rosen library and runs from August to December 2021.

Springs Exhibit

Stop by the Rosen campus library to check out our new exhibit, Florida’s Natural Springs! What better way to start the spring semester than by exploring the bubbling, cold spring waters that make Florida’s ecosystem so unique.

The exhibit features items such as photographs, pamphlets, sketches, and newspaper articles that tell a brief history of visitation to various springs in the state, including Silver Springs, Weeki Wachee Springs, De Leon Springs, and many others.

Small, hand-made dioramas of the springs highlight the different items throughout the display. There are also books atop the display case relating to Florida’s springs that are available for check-out.

The exhibit was curated by Emily Horne from Rosen and Burak Ogreten from Special Collections and Archives. It will be on display until the end of the spring semester.
