2.   DATABASES 
A.  FOUR NEW BUSINESS DATABASES 
The library has recently added four new subscription databases in business, including two add-on modules in LexisNexis Academic for business.  Access is available from the "Search in a Database" link from the library home page (www.library.umaine.edu).

.    Standard & Poor's NetAdvantage includes online access to many of Standard and Poor's research products and publications, including Industry Surveys, Stock Reports, Mutual Fund Reports, Bond Reports, Corporation Records, and The Outlook.

.    Dun & Bradstreet Key Business Ratios Online provides e-access to this core business resource.  Because our subscription limits access to 1 concurrent user, so please be sure to log off when exiting the database. This frees up access more quickly for the next person.

.    Company Dossier pulls together company information from multiple LexisNexis Academic business databases into one convenient report which includes company profiles, financials, current news, court cases, intellectual property information and more.

.    Country Analysis includes "detailed financial data and market conditions inside countries" from the following sources: Business Monitor International News, Business News Americas, Edimax Market Newsletters, Euromonitor Consumer Lifestyles Reports, Euromonitor World Marketing Data and Statistics Reports, Interfax International News, PRS Group Country Reports, PRS Group International Country Risk Guide, U.S. Government Country Reports: Country Commercial Guides, Industry Sector Analysis (ISA) Reports, BISNIS Reports (Business Information Service for the Newly Independent States), International MHarket Insight Reports, GAIN Reports, Central and Eastern Europe BIS Reports, and World Markets Research Centre News.

To access the Company Dossier or Country Analysis modules, click on the "Business" link from the menu in LexisNexis Academic.   For more information regarding these, or any other Fogler Library business resources, please contact Darylyne Provost, our Business Reference Librarian at 1-3610 or via First Class. 


B. TERMS OF USE FOR LICENSED MATERIALS 
Fogler Library, the University of Maine System Libraries, and the Maine State Library have signed license agreements that govern the use of many of our online databases, indexes, e-journals, e-books, CD-ROMs, and even printed books, in some cases. The agreements require us to provide access only to authorized users (usually, University of Maine students, staff, and faculty). They also require that authorized users follow acceptable use policies. Misuse of licensed resources may result in loss of access forH the individual or even the entire University of Maine community.

Please contact Deb Rollins, Head, Collection Services, at 581-1659 if you have questions concerning acceptable use of library resources.
