A. TAX FORMS
Federal and Maine income tax forms and instructions are available from the Fogler Library home page <http://www.library.umaine.edu/>. Use the links located on the right side of the page directly below the "What's New" section.
B. GEOSTATS SPATIAL & NUMERIC DATA GIS SERVICE WORKSTATION
A versatile workstation is available for your research involving spatial & numeric data and geographic information systems (GIS). Located on the first floor of Fogler Library, it can be used to create maps color-coded to correspond to spatial
distribution of your chosen data. Faculty may request a session for their classes to teach a specific application pertinent to their coursework at:
<http://library.umaine.edu/reference/refinstfac.htm>. Additionally, the maps from the Library's collections, or that you provide, can be vector-scanned with the CalComp Drawing Board large-format digitizer tablet at the GeoStats work station or raster-scanned on a color scanner in the Circulation Media Lab, located across from the Oakes Room. Camera equipment for digitizing maps and other large documents is also available in Fogler. A large-format Hewlett-Packard Designjet color plotter connected to the GeoStats workstation provides quality output up to three feet wide and of any practical length.
