1.   SERVICES
A.  LIBRARY WEB PAGE FOR UMAINE FACULTY
    Expressly for the faculty, the Library maintains a web page www.library.umaine.edu/govdoc/forfaculty.htm with links to internal and external services and information that we hope will be useful to you and save you time.  You'll find news items, the status various Library projects and developments, and archived copies of Library's online and print newsletters.
   There are links to interactive Library forms to request: campus delivery of journal articles and books held here at Fogler Library; placing materials on Reserve -- hard-copy or electronic format; and interlibrary loan of books or photocopies of journal articles.  Without leaving one's office, a faculty member can also request reference assistance via e-mail or the Web.
   Supporting communication with the library staff are: a list of the faculty liaison librarian for each department; information about requesting a bibliographic instruction session for your class; and examples of course guides created for these sessions.
    Did you know that we have reciprocal faculty borrowing privileges at nearly 200 other university libraries?  Check out that link and others for: copyright and fair use information; scholarly book reviews from H-NET Reviews; online directories to find faculty at other colleges and universities; and contact information for periodical publishers and suppliers of in-print and out-of-print books and periodicals.  Did we miss something?  Please email the Co-Editor, Frank Wihbey on FirstClass or frankw@umit.maine.edu.

 
2.   DATABASES
