1. EVENTS
A. MAINE STREETS: PRESENTATION (OCTOBER 7, 3 PM) AND EXHIBIT (ALL THROUGH OCTOBER)
During the month of October, Fogler Library will host an exhibit from the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport. "Maine Streets: selections from the Eastern Illustrating & Publishing Company" features selected prints from an extensive glass plate collection acquired by the museum in March 2007. The images are fascinating on many levels. They provide a unique glimpse of another time, leaving the viewer with a sense of the continuity of place through history.
Penobscot Marine Museum archivist Kevin Johnson and Kent Ryden, director of the American and New England Studies program at USM, will give a presentation about the collection in the Special Collections Department, third floor, Fogler Library on October 7th at 3 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
The exhibit and presentation are sponsored by the Penobscot Marine Museum, the Maine Studies Program and Fogler Library. To learn more about the collection visit: www.glassplateimages.com


2. DATABASES
A. COLD SPRING HARBOR PROTOCOLS
Cold Spring Harbor Protocols is now available via Fogler Library's electronic journal site: library.umaine.edu/ejournals/. It is a definitive, interactive source of new and classic research techniques. The database is fully searchable by keyword and subject, and it has many novel features -- such as discussion forums and personal folder -- made possible by publishing online.
Its coverage includes cell and molecular biology, genetics, bioinformatics, protein science, and imaging. Protocols are presented step-by-step and edited in the style that has made Molecular Cloning, Antibodies, Cells and many other CSH manuals essential to the work of scientists worldwide. Protocols will be continuously expanded, updated, and annotated by the originators and users of the techniques. For assistance in using Cold Spring Harbor Protocols, please contact the Science & Engineering librarians at 207-581-1691.
