Indexes and Databases

These electronic databases are licensed by Fogler Library.  Access is limited to students, faculty, and staff of the University of Maine.  Many of these databases provide access to journal article citations and abstracts, with some full text. Check with a librarian for further assistance.


PIVOT is an integrated resource combining a database of funding opportunities with researcher profiles. It can be used to facilitate research endeavors, collaborative activities, travel, curriculum development, conferences, fellowships, post-doctoral positions, equipment acquisition, and operating or capital expenses, among others. Sources of information include federal and regional governments, foundations, professional societies, associations, and corporations. Scientist and scholar profiles in COS Pivot include contact information, links, positions held, publications, patents, funding received, and a first-person narrative describing current research activities and expertise.

University of Maine users should register for an account using a email address, then claim and edit their own profile. Users should consult the Office of Research Administration when seeking and managing research grants, contracts, and other extramural funding. Please note: For many funding opportunities, there are limits to the number of proposals that may be submitted from a single institution. University of Maine researchers are responsible for identifying such limitations and following the University's Limited Competition procedure. The University of Maine may reject proposals that fail to follow this procedure.
