An extensive index of bibliographic materials, Anthropology Plus covers the fields of anthropology, archaeology, ethnology, folklore, and related interdisciplinary areas of research. Please send feedback to Jen Bonnet <jennifer.l.bonnet@maine.edu>.

3. SERVICES
A. DIGITALCOMMONS@UMAINE
Do you deal with a time crunch when it comes to printing and distributing newsletters and technical bulletins? DigitalCommons@UMaine <http://digitalcommons.library.umaine.edu/> offers subscription news feed options that save time chasing down printing proofs, eliminate mail list maintenance, and dodge postage fees. An added bonus is version control, allowing the quick upload of a revised PDF to correct an embarrassing typo, ending the lament over costly mistakes. For information about moving your newsletter or technical bulletin to Digital Commons, contact Gretchen Gfeller at <gretchen.gfeller@umit.maine.edu>. For information about uploading full-text scholarly work, contact Kim Sawtelle at <kimberly.sawtelle@umit.maine.edu> or your library subject specialist <http://library.umaine.edu/colldev/contacts.htm>.
