1. ANNOUNCEMENTS
    A. CAMPUS VIEWS, 1923 - 1936
The second exhibit in a series illustrating the evolution of the University of Maine is currently on display in the Oakes Room at Fogler Library. “Campus Views, 1923 - 1936” uses photographs from the library archives to follow the building of the campus and the UMaine community. Photo captions provide additional insight into life on campus during the early years of the institution. The exhibit was designed by Jerry Lund and Gretchen Gfeller. For more information, contact Gretchen Gfeller at <gretchen.gfeller@umit.maine.edu> or call 581-1696.

    B. TAX FORMS
Federal and Maine income tax forms and instructions are available from the Fogler Library home page <http://www.library.umaine.edu/>. Use the links located in the lower center section.

2. COLLECTIONS
    A. NAXOS MUSIC LIBRARY
Fogler Library has had a subscription to the Naxos Music Library (NML) database, which has streaming audio for classical and other recordings, for quite a while. The library has now added more than 35,000 records for individual recordings and compositions found in NML to URSUS, making artists, composers, and works easier to find and link to online. Access NML at <http://www.library.umaine.edu/indexesdb/Indexes.asp> or search URSUS <http://ursus.maine.edu> and limit to material type "sound, music," or look for the musical notes icon in URSUS results lists.

3. SERVICES
    A. DIGITALCOMMONS@UMAINE
You know that shelf of quarterly and final grant reports gathering dust in the corner of your office? DigitalCommons@UMaine <http://digitalcommons.library.umaine.edu/> is free to all faculty, departments, and research units as a repository for electronic progress and final grant reports. Online availability supports proposals of high scholarly caliber, increases transparency through increased public availability of the proposal and outcomes, and supports the U.S. Federal Research Public Act of 2006. Learn more by contacting Kim Sawtelle at <kimberly.sawtelle@umit.maine.edu> or your library subject specialist <http://library.umaine.edu/colldev/contacts.htm>.
