1.   SERVICES
            A. DARWIN EXHIBIT
In connection with the UMaine Darwin commemoration (recognizing the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species and the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth) and this fall's semester-long Celebration of Darwin course, INT 289, Fogler librarians have created an exhibit on the second floor of the Library.
The exhibit has two parts.  One part represents recent acquisitions by Fogler of works by and about Darwin and works by modern scholars that develop, extend, and react to his ideas. The second part graphically represents the influence of On the Origin of Species by tracing the wide breadth of journals, organized by discipline, where the book has been cited.
The Fogler exhibit remains up throughout the fall semester and is on the second floor, outside the President's Room and near the Science and Engineering Center. The UMaine Celebration of Darwin page is at < http://www2.umaine.edu/anthropology/Darwin1.html >
 
            B. LIBX: FOGLER LIBRARY TOOLBAR
LibX Fogler Library Toolbar is a Firefox extension that provides direct access to Fogler Library's resources. It features: a toolbar & right-click context menu, support for off-campus access via EZProxy, quick full text access to journal articles, support for embedded cues at sites like Amazon, Google, & New York Times Book Reviews, and support for xISBN. Visit Fogler's LibX Toolbar page  <http://library.umaine.edu/staff/libx_guide.htm > for more information and installation instructions.
 
2.   DATABASES
            A. ARTICLE LINKER AVAILABLE IN PUBMED
