1. NEWS

A. FALL 2002 RESERVE
Fogler Library offers services for both traditional and electronic
reserves. To place course material on reserve, use the form on our reserve
web page (http://www.library.umaine.edu/reserves/overview.htm). To ensure
that reserve materials are available for your students, please follow these
guidelines: submit your request at least six weeks prior to the first class
assignment, provide first generation copies for scanning, and provide a copy
of your syllabus. All reserve materials are available through URSUS.
Electronic reserves provide 24/7 access to your materials through our Eres
system. This system also allows reserve list content to be password access
only. For more information about reserves and processing please see our web
page at http://www.library.umaine.edu/reserves/default.htm

B. PRINT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
This fall the Library will fully implement a print management system, Pharos
Uniprint. This is the system that has been tested in the reference section
of the library over the past few months. Students will be given 300 free
pages per semester for their printing, after the free pages are used the
cost per page for printing will be $ 0.08. For further information see the
Paper-Toner Cost Recovery Committee information at
http://www.ume.maine.edu/acac/adhoc.htm

3. LIBRARY SERVICES

A. FALL 2000 -- URGENT UPDATE
Fogler Library had a number of positions that were unfilled over the past
year due to the two hiring moratoriums. Although we now have been allowed
to fill some of the positions we will not be able to hire and have the new
staff in the library by the time classes begin on September 3. This will
have an impact on the services we are able to offer. We will be unable to
do many of the instruction sessions that we have done in the past. We will
need more lead time to process reserves, both electronic and traditional,
for your classes. It is possible that some hours in some areas of the
library will be reduced for a period of time.
We hope to fill the released positions as soon as possible, but it is a
process that will take time.
