University of Maine on WorldCat

The University of Maine on WorldCat service searches the entire OCLC WorldCat database, but displays locally owned materials in URSUS or MaineCat at the top of search results lists. (The local-materials-first display is a default setting, with the alternative being most-relevant-materials-first, even when not held locally.) It also displays article citations from selected major publishers.

The University of Maine on WorldCat database is not the equivalent of the URSUS or MaineCat catalogs. It is the OCLC WorldCat database, with only those UMaine-owned materials marked as library holdings in WorldCat presented first. For the most complete picture of University of Maine materials, and all links to our full-text resources such as e-books and e-journals, please use URSUS.

Please send any feedback or questions about University of Maine on WorldCat to Deb Rollins.


Please send feedback about trial databases to Deb Rollins unless there is a librarian's name noted for feedback under the trial description.
