1. ANNOUNCEMENTS
            A. ELECTRONIC BOOK SURVEY FOR FACULTY AND STUDENTS
Over the past year we’ve added access to over 100,000 e-books through URSUS, our
catalog. Now we need to know what you think about them. You can access the survey at
<http://library.umaine.edu/ebooksurvey.htm>. The survey should take about 10 minutes of
your time, and we’d appreciate your input. The survey will run from Wednesday, March
23rd through Wednesday, April 6th.
 
Thanks for taking the survey. For more information about Fogler’s e-books, check out
our e-books FAQ
<http://www.library.umaine.edu/colldev/ebooksfaq.htm> or contact your subject librarian

<jim.bird@umit.maine.edu> if you have any questions
about the survey.
