2. COLLECTIONS
            A.  MAINE FORESTER 
We are happy to announce that The Maine Forester has joined the Yearbooks Online and the Maine Town Reports on the growing list of digital collections available from Fogler Library. Our partner in this endeavor is the School of Forest Resources who provided full print sets for us to scan in order to preserve this unique publication and provide online access. The Maine Forester is a hybrid publication that has served as both a traditional yearbook with requisite student and faculty photos but also includes selected research papers from the School.
 
In viewing the volumes online you will get a sense of how the tenor of the publication changed over the years. Sparsely published in the 1920s and 1930s it appeared annually starting in 1936 through 1941, taking a significant hiatus during the years of World War II. Late in the 1950s the design shifted toward a considerably larger format very similar to the University’s Prism yearbook. 
 
Throughout the 80 year history of the publication wonderful photographs of the Maine woods and waterways have been captured and a number of these grace the cover. On our web site we have the opportunity of featuring a sampling of these as part of our navigational guide.  We encourage you to explore these pages online at: <http://library.umaine.edu/forester > and send us your feedback.
