How Electronic Resources Are Acquired

New subscriptions to electronic journals and journal packages, online indexes and databases, digital archives, e-book collections, and other types of electronic resources for libraries represent on-going fiscal commitments. As such they're initiated only when other resources are canceled, or when money for this purpose has been added to Fogler Library's base budget, the University of Maine System Libraries' budget, or the state appropriations for electronic resource subscriptions. 

The library's collection of electronic information resources, which includes electronic journals, e-books, and online indexes and databases, is represented in URSUS. Our Indexes and Databases page lists major indexing and abstracting services and full-text journal and e-book collections. Our ejournals@umaine portal lists electronic journals to which the library subscribes.

In addition to acquisition by purchase, librarians also evaluate and select freely available Internet resources for the Library. These are represented in various subject and course guides
