1.   SERVICES
A.  NEW SUBJECT PORTALS ON FOGLER WEB
What’s YOUR Topic?  Step through the subject portals at Fogler Library... 
From Anthropology to Zoology and from Dance to Women’s Studies, we have brought together books, journals, online resources and contact with your Fogler Library subject specialist under a single web page we call a portal.  A subject portal serves as a doorway for your research needs that leads to many resources available both locally and globally via the Internet.   A wide array of subject portals, 83 in all, is available to support research, instruction, and studies here at UMaine. 

Say your student is looking to write a term paper for your Psychology course.  Find “Psychology” in the portal pulldown window on Fogler’s Home Page [ http://www.library.umaine.edu ].  The portal will lead to article sources, course guides and options for contacting librarians with specific questions about the topic.  Suggested materials and “spotlights” on noteworthy resources are also available as well as quick links to comprehensive sources such as URSUS and Fogler Library's Indexes and Databases. Look for the "Portals" icon to put the many resources Fogler Library has to offer at one's fingertips!

3.   DATABASES
