COLLECTIONS
           A.  FACULTY OF 1000 AND THE SCIENTIST
We have a 3 week trial to Faculty of 1000 (Biology and Medicine) and The Scientist.  Faculty of 1000 is a literature awareness tool that "comprehensively and systematically highlights and reviews the most interesting papers published" in the biological and medical sciences, based on the recommendations of selected leading researchers.  Faculty of 1000, run "by scientists for scientists," provides a rapidly updated overview of important papers and trends in the fields covered.  The Scientist is a magazine covering the latest developments in the life sciences including research, technology and business.  The Database Trials web site is at <http://www.library.umaine.edu/colldev/trials.htm>
Please send your feedback to Jim Bird <jim.bird@umit.maine.edu>
 
           B. OXFORD BIBLIOGRAPHIES ONLINE
Fogler Library now provides access to Oxford Bibliographies Online, a collection of discipline-based subject modules in which leading scholars recommend and summarize the most important and significant sources in each subject.
