1.   SERVICES
A.  LIBRARY WEB PAGE FOR FACULTY
     Fogler Library maintains a web page expressly for faculty, with links to internal and external services and information that we hope will be useful. <http://library.umaine.edu/forfaculty.htm>
     You'll find news items about the status of any Library project requiring faculty input, new books on order; and announcements of new databases on trial. There are interactive Library forms for campus delivery of journal articles and books, as well as for placing materials on Reserve (both hard-copy and electronic format) for your courses. Without leaving your office you can request reference assistance via e-mail and arrange interlibrary loan of a book or copies of journal articles not held here. Other helpful information includes faculty liaison librarians for each department, how to schedule bibliographic instruction sessions for your classes, and examples of course guides created for these sessions.  Did you know that we have reciprocal faculty borrowing privileges at nearly 200 other university libraries?  Click on ôReciprocal faculty borrowing privileges". Other links you will find there include: copyright and fair use information; scholarly book reviews from H-NET Reviews; online directories of faculty at other universities; and contact information for publishers and suppliers of books (in-print and out-of-print), and periodicals.
