1. National Theatre Collection Database Trial
UMaine patrons will have access to the National Theatre Collection through March 4, 2021. National Theatre Collection brings the stage to life through access to high definition streaming video of world-class productions and unique archival material offering significant insight into theatre and performance studies. Through a collaboration with the U.K.’s National Theatre, this collection offers a range of digital performance resources never previously seen outside of the National Theatre’s archive.
2. Including Information Literacy Curriculum in Your Courses
As you prepare your classes, you may want to include information literacy skill building into your curriculum, as appropriate for your discipline. Fogler Reference Librarians are able to assist with identifying concepts and designing assignments, as well as provide instruction in this area either face-to-face or through Zoom. Contact your subject librarian if you would like to discuss this.
3. COVID-19 Update on Print Reserves for Spring Courses
This spring, Fogler Library will continue to limit the handling of materials in the building to protect the health of students, faculty, and staff.
To that end, we will not be placing print materials on reserve for spring courses. We will continue to offer electronic reserves, which offer students 24/7 access to your course materials (with the exception of course-required textbooks, which the library does not purchase). Please contact our Circulation Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need help submitting electronic reserve material.
