1. ANNOUNCEMENTS
    A. MAINE SHARED COLLECTIONS STRATEGY PROGRAM NEWS
We are delighted to announce that Maine Shared Collections Strategy Program Manager Matthew Revitt and PI Clem Guthro's presentation paper "Together we are stronger: A cooperative approach to managing print collections." has been accepted by the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA) Acquisitions & Collection Development Section jury. The paper will be presented at the 2013 IFLA Conference Open Session to be held in August in Singapore. There is also an article about this initiative in the March issue of Library Journal <http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2013/03/managing-libraries/major-maine-libraries-public-and-academic-collaborate-on-print-archiving-project/>.

2. COLLECTIONS
    A. ACCESS TO SPRINGER PROTOCOLS
Access to Springer Protocols is now available via <http://130.111.64.3/record=b5297049>. Springer Protocols is a database of reproducible laboratory protocols in the life and biomedical sciences offering researchers nearly thirty years worth of time tested, easily reproducible, step-by-step protocols for immediate use in their lab. Includes protocols from the Humana Press series:
Methods in molecular biology, Methods in Molecular Medicine, Methods in Biotechnology, Methods in Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Neuromethods.
The database also offers a large number of laboratory handbooks, such as the Biomethods handbook, the Proteomics handbook, and the Springer laboratory manuals.
