Featured Resource: HathiTrust Digital Library
HathiTrust is a partnership of academic and research institutions, offering a collection of titles digitized from libraries around the world. The HathiTrust Digital Library database of more than 10 million volumes spans several centuries and many languages. Search options include full text and bibliographic record fields, including title, author, and date. More than 3.4 million of the contributed volumes are in the public domain and therefore may be freely viewed online, one page at a time.

1. Access to Several Resources Ending in January
As of January 1, 2020, several resources will no longer be available through Fogler Library. Those resources include Film and Television Literature Index database, Social Work Abstracts database, and CAB Direct. Access to BizMiner will end on January 27, 2020, and access to OnePetro will end on February 5, 2020.

For those who are affected by these changes, the staff at Fogler Library is committed to helping you locate the materials you need for teaching and research. If you’ve been using one of the above resources, please contact your subject specialists in the Fogler Library Reference Department as soon as possible.

2. Access to Fogler When Traveling Abroad
If you are planning to travel out of the country and would like to ensure access to Fogler resources while you are away, please contact your Subject Librarian ahead of time.

3. Expanding Scholarly Impact with DigitalCommons@UMaine
Last month, DigitalCommons@UMaine had 72,522 full-text downloads and 578 new submissions were posted, bringing the total works in the repository to 58,733. The University of Maine scholarship was read by 3,453 institutions across 185 countries.
