Faculty, staff, and graduate students have access to two services at Fogler allowing you to request items of interest to be sent to your desktop or office. The first service is Document Delivery of items from the Fogler collection <>. We can send a volume to your office; or we can digitize an article or section of a book from the collection and deliver it electronically to your computer. Requests are usually processed within one to two days, often sooner. The second service is searching for items needed for your research that are not held by Fogler. Through the Interlibrary Loan interface ILLIAD <>, you may request materials globally. Journal article requests often can be filled within three or four days, book requests typically take about two weeks to arrive. If you have additional questions about either service, please contact Greg Curtis at <> or call 581-1681.

Is there a difference in the perception of social networking between the current generation of American college students and their professors? Honors student and business major Robert W. Brown explored this question in his 2013 thesis, Bridging the Gap: Intergenerational Perceptions Towards Professional Usage of Social Networking Websites <> available in DigitalCommons@UMaine. For information about how to upload your academic research contact Kim Sawtelle at <> or your library subject specialist <>.
