Access and Availability

Raymond H. Fogler Library at the University of Maine is the largest research library in the state. The library's collections consist of more than 1 million volumes, 1.6 million microforms and 2.25 million government publications. These traditional formats are being integrated with many new collection materials, including sound recordings, CD-Roms, videotape and remote electronic resources.

In addition to serving the University of Maine community, Fogler Library spends thousands of dollars each year to support services and resources for the people of Maine. Recent projects include the Science, Technology and Business portal; Maine Music Box, an interactive, multimedia digital music library; and Windows on Maine, a collection of digital resources for teachers and students. Only a fraction of the cost to create and maintain these services is met by state funding.

A donation to the Fogler Library Friends Quasi-Endowment Fund in the University of Maine Foundation is a way to ensure that these resources remain free and available throughout the state.

Friends of Fogler Library is a group dedicated to helping carry on a proud tradition of providing private support to augment public funding. Its role is more important than ever as Fogler Library strives to maintain its leadership position in teaching, research and public service in a changing world.
