Featured Resource: Special Collections Finding Aids

Manuscript material held by Raymond H. Fogler Library’s Special Collections Department covers a wide range of subjects reflecting historical events, business, education, arts, and sciences. This gallery provides downloadable finding aids for the department’s largest collections, those where it seemed particularly valuable for researchers to be able to search and browse the titles of folders within larger collections.

1. Finding Funding Challenge
December 14 – December 18
Online via Email

Join Fogler Library and the Office of Research Development for the Finding Funding Challenge! Each day, for five days, you will receive an email with tasks designed to build your grantseeking skills. You will learn how to effectively and efficiently find funding opportunities tailored to your creative and scholarly interests, strategically read a request for proposals, and make your grant proposal a standout.

RSVP to join us, and take your grantseeking skills to the next level!

The challenge will take place December 14-18. We encourage everyone who’s interested to sign up — even if you won’t have time to complete the challenges during the Challenge Week. This may be especially resonant for UMaine faculty and graduate students.
