A. Book Orders
Digital Commons has come to the University of Maine. This institutional repository software from Berkeley Electronic Press will help to archive and to provide greater access to the scholarship of the UMaine community. The project is coordinated by Fogler Library with support from the Office of the Vice President and Provost, the College of Education and Human Development, the Honors College, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Division of Lifelong Learning. Thanks to the efforts of Fogler staff and our collaborators, the vision of what our digital commons can be is beginning to take shape. We invite you to preview this important new service for the UMaine community at <http://digitalcommons.library.umaine.edu/>.
A. BOOK ORDERS
Each year, Fogler Library purchases approximately 5,000 books on the recommendation of faculty, librarians, and other members of the University community. The library allocates part of its materials budget to subject areas which correspond to the University's academic departments, colleges and/or schools. These funds are intended to be used to acquire materials that fall outside our approval and profiled books plans. Faculty and staff are invited to submit requests for books that address curriculum and research-related needs. Use our Book Recommendation Form <http://www.library.umaine.edu/colldev/recbook.htm>, or mail or e-mail requests to the librarian assigned to your college or department <http://www.library.umaine.edu/colldev/contacts.htm>. For more information about how books and other materials are selected and acquired, see <http://www.library.umaine.edu/colldev/howmaterial.htm>.
