            B. Guide For Identifying Citing References
The Special Collections Department, established in 1970, is the place to find all things Maine-related at Fogler Library. Books, pamphlets, maps, state documents, town reports, newspapers and periodicals provide extensive coverage of Maine’s communities, counties, people and institutions. Works by Maine authors and books about Maine artists trace the creative history of the state.  A wide variety of historically significant primary source material such as personal papers and records of businesses, fraternal and civic organizations and other institutions provide ample opportunities for original research. The William S. Cohen Papers, donated by Secretary Cohen to the University, offer an in-depth look into a life of political participation and civic involvement. Special Collections is also the place to find theses and dissertations awarded by the University as well as publications of University faculty and academic departments and a wonderful collection of historic photographs of campus buildings and activities. For more information about Special Collections, visit the department web site at: < > or contact Brenda Howitson Steeves at 581-1798 or email <>.   
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 < >. Please contact Cynthia Crosser (Reference, 581-3612) or Jim Bird (Science & Engineering, 581-1697) if you have questions about citation searching.
