Early Canadiana is a series of collections published by Canadian.org, a membership alliance of distinguished scholars and representatives of major memory institutions from across Canada. It contains over 80,000 rare books, magazines and government publications about Canada from the time of the first European settlers to the first two decades of the 20th Century (and, in the case of the online version, to the 1940s.) It is available in two formats—on microfiche and online through the Early Canadiana Online database (http://library.umaine.edu/indexesdb/dbdetails.asp?field=Name&search=Early+Canadiana+Online ). Access to the online database is available remotely to members of the University of Maine community. Scholars from outside the university may also access the database if they come to the Information Commons in Fogler Library. In addition, the entire microfiche collection is available to patrons outside the university through interlibrary loan, and bibliographic records for all titles in the microfiche collection have been added to URSUS (Fogler Library’s online catalog) making these titles accessible through author, title, key-word, or subject searches.
