2.  SERVICES
A. INTRODUCING ILLiad, OUR NEW INTERLIBRARY LOAN SYSTEM
Fogler Library now has a new Interlibrary loan system. Go to the ILL website < [ http://www.library.umaine.edu/ill/ ] and you'll be directed to create an ILLiad account. You will be able to place all your requests through ILLiad.  Once you've created an account you will not have to enter your personal information again. You'll be able to view and track all your requests from the time you place them until you receive them. We'll also deliver most articles electronically through your ILLiad page.

Try the new system out. If you have any questions, contact Chris Tuthill.  E-mail: chris.tuthill@umit.maine.edu
 Voice: 581-1674.
 
3. DATABASES
A.   CQ WEEKLY NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE
Fogler Library now subscribes to the CQ Weekly database.  This Congressional Quarterly publication provides full-text articles on the United States Congress, including pending legislation and floor votes.  The database starts in 1983, complementing our print/microfilm collection of the CQ Weekly, which goes back to 1953.  You can access CQ Weekly from the Fogler homepage ([ http://library.umaine.edu ], under Search in a Database.
