1.  SERVICES
A.  CONVENTIONAL AND ELECTRONIC RESERVES SERVICES OFFERED
   Fogler Library offers both conventional and electronic reserves ("e-reserves") services. To place course material on reserve, please use the form at our reserves website www.library.umaine.edu/reserves/form.htm.  To ensure that your reserve materials are ready for your students kindly follow these guidelines: submit your request at least six weeks prior to the first class assignment; provide first generation copies for scanning; and provide a copy of your syllabus.   Designate whether your materials are to be available to students as hard copy only, e-reserve only, or both.
  Students can look up all reserve material listings -- by instructor and class number -- online through URSUS.  E-reserves are available online 24/7.  If your reserve material is in print format, students can go to the Reserve Desk on the first floor of the Library, tell the staff member the titles they need, and check them out for the loan period you have specified (e.g. 4-hour, 4-hour-library use only, 2-day).
   For more information about reserves and processing please see our web page at www.library.umaine.edu/reserves/default.htm.  If you have questions you (or your grad assistant) are encouraged to contact library staff directly.  Email:  reserve@umit.maine.edu; voice:  581-1641.

   Announcing "GIS/Computer Mapping Clinics", offering consultation on any stage of a faculty or student computer mapping project, and introducing the GeoStats facilities to carry out all or some of it here in the Library.  Clinic hours are Monday-Thursday 9 am - 2 pm from now until October 15 when our GIS workshops begin: library.umaine.edu/newmedia/#Computer_Mapping.  To make an appointment please email karen.stewart@umit.maine.edu or frankw@umit.maine.edu or call 581-1680.  Walk-in clients are welcome.
