Welcome to Orono: Outdoors & Recreation


The University of Maine holds many books about hiking and outdoors activities throughout Maine. You will find that most of them are available for library use only, and are held in Special Collections on the third floor. However, most of these titles are also available to be checked out from other libraries within the Ursus catalog system. To do so, select the book you would like to check out, verify that it's available from another institution, then click "Request" at the top of the record, and follow the prompts. Make sure to allow for about a week for the book to be delivered to campus.
