The Rose Library collection includes circulating books (LC Call number ranges Q, R, S, and T), reference materials (including all items previously housed in the CISAT library), a browsing book collection, and media. Though a majority of our journal holdings are electronic, some print journals supporting research in science, technology and other departments on East Campus are located in the Rose Library.
In addition to having library materials delivered to a nearby library, faculty will be able to request materials (books, journals articles, media, and copies of microfilm/fiche/form) from any JMU library to be delivered to their departmental mailbox. Read more about this article and book delivery service.
Faculty may place high demand or specialized materials on reserve pending copyright clearance. Reserve materials may include library owned articles, books, videotapes, CD's, audiocassettes and personal copies of material. Materials can be put on reserve, in either print or electronic format, at any of our library locations. More information about this service.

You can find the Center for Faculty Innovation on the 5th floor of the new Rose Library and we are here to help. We encourage you to visit, call, or e-mail us with your requests and ideas. Please get a cup of coffee in the lobby, take the elevator to the fifth floor, and explore our excellent resource collection.
The mission of the JMU Center for Faculty Innovation (CFI) is derived from the belief that faculty innovation and excellence are an ongoing interplay of teaching, scholarship, service, and leadership.
The CFI is faculty-driven and dedicated to providing support for faculty in their multidimensional roles. It is a demonstration of JMU's commitment to a valuable campus resource, the faculty.
