Oakes Room Temporary Closure

UMaine Dining anticipates two Costa coffee machines and a VICKI snack machine to be operational the week of February 5, 2024. Allergen-free options will be available. Due to an unforeseen delay, the Oakes Room will be closed later this week for floor stripping and waxing.

Behind the Scenes

Our Behind-the-Scenes series is meant to demystify the workings of a modern academic library. In this first 1-minute video, Library Specialist Michael Dunn gives us a behind-the-scenes look at Fogler’s Circulation Department. The video editing was done by Library Specialist Paul Smitherman.

Featured Resource: Guide to Open Access Publishing

Fogler Library has a small number of publisher licensing agreements that enable UMaine faculty, staff, and students to publish their research as open access (OA) journal articles, without the need to pay an article processing charge (APC). The publishers listed on the page do not charge the library any additional fees for OA publishing on top of the library’s existing subscription cost. Two additional publishers have been added for 2024-2026: Company of Biologists, and Royal Society of Chemistry.
