A. NEW HIGH RESOLUTION COLOR PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTER IN THE MRC
The Media Resource Center (MRC), second floor, Fogler Library now has a new EPSON Stylus Photo 2200 Printer. This printer is designed to make high resolution color photographic prints. Users supply their own photo quality paper (available at UMaine Bookstore, the UMaine Computer Connections and other local retail stores.)
Printing is currently free only when a project is created using one of the MRC scanners, or for personal photographic projects, (all photographic paper must be supplied by the user). Due to the high cost of color toner and maintenance of this specialized printer, users are asked to limit printing to a minimum. For a complete listing of equipment available, circulation and use policies and fees at the MRC, please see our web page http://www.library.umaine.edu/mrc/policy.htm .
A. NEW COMPANY INFORMATION DATABASE: MERGENT ONLINE
Mergent Online provides access to detailed financial information on publicly traded US and international companies. Information on US companies includes Wall Street consensus earnings estimates and EDGARŽ filings dating back to 1993 and updated daily. It provides an archive of information regarding defunct US and international companies, information on institutional holdings, insider trading updates, country profiles and the ability to create customized reports and comparisons.
Access is limited to two concurrent users. Available via the Databases link from the Library home page: http://library.umaine.edu.
