B. FINDING GRANT FUNDING FOR COMMUNITY NONPROFITS
Looking to boost your grant-seeking skills for your community nonprofit organization? Attend a hands-on brownbag
workshop, Wednesday, May 28th, 11:30am - 1pm, at the Bangor Public Library. Jen Bonnet, Reference Librarian at
Fogler Library, will discuss and demonstrate various online funding resources that are available to community
members at the Fogler Library and on the free web. Feel free to bring your lunch!

C. OPEN ACCESS REPOSITORIES, COPYRIGHT LAWS, AND DIGITAL COMMONS FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS
Open Access Repositories, Copyright Laws, and Digital Commons for Graduate Students
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXmSImbTCTk&feature=youtu.be>, narrated by Kimberly Sawtelle, is a 26-minute video
from Fogler Library discussing Open Access, its influence on research impact cycles, and the importance of
copyright. The video covers topics of interest to both graduate students just entering the world of scholarly
publishing, and experienced researchers. For more information, contact Kimberly Sawtelle at
<kimberly.sawtelle@umit.maine.edu>.

2. COLLECTIONS
A. SUMMER READING
In addition to materials supporting research and teaching, Fogler Library offers lighter fare in print, e-book, and
audiobook formats. Drop by the library and browse our Popular Reading Collection in the Reserve Reading Room on the
first floor. You will find titles ranging from popular science to recent books by Janet Evanovich. From the
“Indexes and Databases” <http://library.umaine.edu/indexesdb/Indexes.asp> page on our website, search the Maine
InfoNet Download Library to find popular e-books and downloadable audiobooks.

3. SERVICES
A. DIGITALCOMMONS@UMAINE
Repeated studies show that full-text articles available through open access institutional repositories, such as
DigitalCommons@UMaine <http://digitalcommons.library.umaine.edu/>, have significantly higher research impact than
materials available by subscription access, only. Learn how easy it is to upload your articles to
DigitalCommons@UMaine; contact Kimberly Sawtelle at <kimberly.sawtelle@umit.maine.edu> or your library subject
specialist <http://library.umaine.edu/colldev/contacts.htm>.
