1. COLLECTIONS
A. ALL SCIFINDER SEATS CHANGING TO WEB ACCESS
SciFinder, the expanded electronic version of Chemical Abstracts, is available on the Web. The client software version of the database will be phased out shortly after April 30. After this date, users will need to create personal accounts to use SciFinder. For details on creating an account, see the SciFinder guide <http://library.umaine.edu/science/scifinder.htm>. For more information contact Nancy Curtis <nancy.curtis@umit.maine.edu> or call 581-1679.

B. BOOK ORDERS
Each year, Fogler Library purchases approximately 5,000 books on the recommendation of faculty, librarians, and other members of the University community. The library allocates part of its materials budget to subject areas which correspond to the University's academic departments, colleges and/or schools. These funds are intended to be used to acquire materials that fall outside our approval and profiled books plans. Faculty and staff are invited to submit requests for books that address curriculum and research-related needs. Use our Book Recommendation Form <http://www.library.umaine.edu/colldev/recbook.htm>, or mail or e-mail requests to the librarian assigned to your college or department <http://www.library.umaine.edu/colldev/contacts.htm>. For more information about how books and other materials are selected and acquired, see <http://www.library.umaine.edu/colldev/howmaterial.htm>.
