LGBTQ History MonthIn honor of LGBTQ History Month, we want to highlight two resources here at Fogler Library.  First, we invite you to take a look at our LGBTQ+ Resources guide, highlighting materials available through the Library.

Also, we invite you to join the LGBTQIA2+ Learning & Affirming Challenge! This self-paced program is a collaboration between Fogler Library and the Communication & Journalism department, and  includes brief tasks designed to help participants learn, listen, share insights, and take action around topics related to sexual orientation, gender identity, intersectionality, and LGBTQIA2+ affirming learning.

Digitized student publicationsThe University of Maine’s DigitalCommons@UMaine is home to digitized copies of university publications that explore the history of the university. The most recently added publication is The Maine Annex which was published by the students of the University of Maine at the Brunswick Campus, starting January 10, 1947. The publication provides insight into student life in the post-war years and contemporary attitudes on gender and sexuality.
New archival finding aids releasedMore finding aids for University of Maine records held by Fogler Library have been added to the finding aid page on Digital Commons. The most recent finding aids are for the papers of recently retired faculty member Michael Howard and from the Division of Lifelong Learning,   Peace and Reconciliation Studies, and College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture. Matthew Revitt (, Special Collections and Maine Shared Collection Librarian is currently processing records related to the Honors College.
