Looking to boost your grant-seeking skills? Interested in the grant submission processes at the University of Maine? Join Jason Charland (OVPR), Jen Bonnet (Fogler), and Wendy Eckert (ORSP) in the Fogler Library Classroom for a workshop on finding funding for faculty research and grant-supported projects. Topics will include the grant submission process at UMaine, strategies for matching your research or scholarly interests with potential funders, hands-on searching of two key funding databases available through Fogler Library, and more. The workshop will take place Monday, December 15, 1:00-2:30 pm. To register please RSVP to Jen Bonnet via email <jennifer.l.bonnet@maine.edu>. Seating is limited.

2. SERVICES
    A. DIGITALCOMMONS@UMAINE
The Digital Commons Network <http://network.bepress.com/> brings together over 1 million scholarly works from nearly 350 institutions worldwide, creating a dynamic network of scholars and an increased number of potential connections for collaboration. Learn how to expand the impact of your research by self-archiving in DigitalCommons@UMaine <http://digitalcommons.library.umaine.edu/>. Contact Kim Sawtelle at 581.1692 or by First Class <kimberly.sawtelle@umit.maine.edu> or your library subject specialist <http://library.umaine.edu/colldev/contacts.htm>.

3. COLLECTIONS
    A. KANOPY STREAMING VIDEO
Kanopy streaming video is available on a trial basis at <http://www.library.umaine.edu/colldev/trials.htm>. The trial expires November 22, 2014. Kanopy offers individual, institutional leases for a broad selection of over 26,000 streaming films, documentaries and training videos from thousands of producers with new releases launched daily. Film leases on Kanopy would come from library college/department budget lines (note, however, that in some cases it is more cost-efficient to purchase a DVD and make streaming access for a course available locally.) Featured producers in Kanopy's collection include Criterion Collection, PBS, California Newsreel, HBO, Kino Lorber, First Run Features, BBC, Roland Collection, MVD, Seventh Art, Psychotherapy.net, Symptom Media, and many more. Please contact Reference at 581.1673 for assistance in using Kanopy.
