2.  COLLECTIONS
A. TERMS OF USE FOR LICENSED MATERIALS
    Fogler Library, the University of Maine System Libraries, and the Maine State Library have signed license agreements that govern the use of many of our online databases, indexes, e-journals, e-books, CD-ROMs, and even printed books, in some cases. The agreements require us to provide access only to authorized users (usually, University of Maine students, staff, and faculty). They also require that authorized users follow acceptable use policies. Misuse of licensed resources may result in loss of access for the individual or even the entire University of Maine community.
   See www.library.umaine.edu/terms_of_use.htm for more information.  Please contact Deb Rollins, Head, Collection Services, at 207-581-1659 if you have questions concerning acceptable use of library resources.
