1. ANNOUNCEMENTS
            A. SOCIAL MEDIA SURVEY
Do you use social media?  Would you like to see Fogler Library on Facebook, so you could access our resources from your page?
Please take a few minutes to answer these and other questions in a short survey. The survey will be open until February 26. There are only 5 simple questions about your use of social media web sites (such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.) The survey is completely anonymous and requires absolutely no personal information. It can be completed in less than a minute!
To take the survey, go to:  <http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MW7Z2FG>
 
2. SERVICES
            A. LIBRARY ONLINE GUIDES - GUIDES FOR IDENTIFYING CITING REFERENCES
Who is citing your work? Ever wondered who has cited your papers and other scholarly works in their own research articles? Cynthia Crosser has created a guide to identifying citing references using five major tools: Web of Science, JSTOR, SciFinder Scholar, MathSciNet, and Google Scholar. It may be found at <www.library.umaine.edu/general/cited_your_article.htm>.  Please contact Cynthia Crosser (Reference, 581-3612) or Jim Bird (Science & Engineering, 581-1697) if you have questions about citation searching.  
 
            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.
