1.  ANNOUNCEMENTS
          A. FOGLER ON THE MOVE
We were busy over the summer making changes and improving our services. The first change returning users will notice is the new carpet. This extends through the main sections of the first and second floors. We have also removed shelving from the Reserve Reading Room to provide more seating and easy access to our new and popular reading books. We are moving the Detective Fiction collection to the Jones Room (also known as the Flag Room) on the second floor (the paneled room at the top of the main stairs).
 
2. SERVICES
          A. CONTACT FOR ARRANGING LIBRARY RESERVES FOR YOUR COURSES
 Peter Altmann is the Library specialist to whom you can submit general queries, and who will assist with forms and requirements, and troubleshoot issues for you regarding Library course reserves. Email: <reserve@umit.maine.edu> or phone: 207-581-1641.
 The Library offers hardcopy and electronic reserves (e-reserves). E-reserves provide 24/7 access to course material and your home pages via the URSUS catalog. Website for further information on Library course reserves: <http://library.umaine.edu/reserves/default.htm>
 
          B. LIBRARY INSTRUCTION SESSIONS
As classes get underway we want to remind you that librarians in the Reference and Science & Engineering departments at Fogler are available to provide instructional sessions for your students.  These sessions can cover specific databases, or a variety of research materials, that will aid your students in their class work.  For Humanities and Social Science disciplines, contact Nancy Lewis:
