It also includes full-text first chapters of many books, an all-editions grouping function, Lexile scores, a rating guide based on retail and library sales, and the opportunity to save searches or create alerts. One-click URSUS and  EBSCO database searches are available from records for individual titles.

B.  NEW DATABASE OFFERED:  EDUCATION FULL TEXT
    Fogler Library now offers access to the H.W. Wilson database "Education Full Text" thanks to funding from the University of Maine System Libraries.  It provides high-quality indexing and abstracts for an international range of English-language education journals, books, and yearbooks. More than 725 Journals are indexed “cover to cover” going back to 1983. Full text articles are provided for over 350 journals going back to 1996.
  ArticleLinker,  a popular URSUS adjunct, connects to additional full-text articles and points to library holdings in print and microform.  Education Full Text is available from the Indexes and Databases page at http://library.umaine.edu/indexesdb/Indexes.asp on the Library’s website.
