Fogler Library has long been recognized for the high quality of our service to
both the campus and statewide communities. Within our larger mission we have
always tried to give particular attention to University of Maine students. Our
student users have responded to this and are quick to complement our friendly
and helpful staff as well as the wide range of available resources. Joyce Rumery,
Dean of Libraries, recently received official recognition of this very special
On February 19th Dean Rumery attended the Student Government Services Committee meeting to field questions and listen to student input. In less than a month, the library was able to act on many of the students’ suggestions. These included: additional power strips, more tables on level 3, and more seating throughout the building.
In acknowledgement of the Library’s attentiveness to student needs, Student Government passed a resolution on March 24th thanking the Dean and Fogler Library for being interested in students’ opinions about improving the library. In speaking about the resolution, Senator Ben Goodman remarked, “We didn’t know what to expect, but within a day, there were significant results.”
Representatives from Student Government presented Rumery with a framed plaque commemorating the resolution and conveyed their appreciation for the Library and its many services.
The response to Student Government’s suggestions quickly became part of a larger effort as the Library’s Marketing Committee began soliciting student ideas in other venues.
