1. ANNOUNCEMENTS
A. NEW HEALTH INSURANCE GUIDE
Fogler Library has a new online guide to health insurance. Intended to help undergraduate students begin research on the complex topic of health insurance in the United States, this guide provides links, and guidance for continued research strategies on the topic. Access to the guide is at <http://library.umaine.edu/virtualref/healthinsurance14.htm>.

2. COLLECTIONS
A. AMERICAN INDIAN HISTORIES AND CULTURES
Fogler Library now has a subscription to American Indian Histories and Cultures. This database includes full text of selected works relating to American Indian history in the United States, Canada and Mexico, as well as visual material such as art work, photographs, and maps. Content is digitized from the Newberry Library’s extensive Edward E. Ayer Collection; one of the strongest archival collections on American Indian history in the world.
Access the database at: <http://www.library.umaine.edu/indexesdb/dbdetails.asp?field=Name&search=American+Indian+Histories+and+Cultures>.
