* Access to Fogler collections and licensed resources is vetted through UMaine Human Resources. Contact Circulation (um.library.circ@maine.edu or 207.581.1641) to determine if you have a valid library record. Depending on your status, a record will be created, updated, or your department chair will need to apply for access on your behalf (by contacting Kelly Hoovler, Human Resources Partner, kelly.hoovler@maine.edu, 207.581.1531). Borrowing requires a MaineCard (coordinate with your department to obtain one). If access to online licensed resources only is required, we will provide a barcode number to vetted faculty upon request.
