Faculty Services: Resources for Faculty at Fogler Library
Every department has a subject librarian who is available for one-on-one research assistance as well as individual class instruction. Use the link above to find your subject librarian. We look forward to working with you!
Faculty and staff members who are traveling outside of the country need to contact their Subject Librarian ahead of time to ensure access to Library Resources.
Librarians regularly collaborate with faculty to address research needs of a given assignment or class project. Instruction can take place in the library, in your classroom, via web conferencing software, and/or through online course guides. Contact your subject librarian to set up a session. We look forward to working with you!
See this guide for various film options that the Library provides access to. You may find additional films in SWANK Digital Campus, a selection of box office hits permitted for public performance in non-theatrical markets.
Academic Video Online Premium (AVOP) is a database containing films you might wish to use in your classes. If you would like to create a shorter clip for use in your class or your Blackboard site, follow these instructions:
1) Go to AVOP .
2) Create a user account (this is free) or sign in to your user account.
3) Find a video of interest, open it, and click on "Clips" at the top of the page.
4) On the "Clips" page, click on the red box that says, "Create New."
5) Slide the left and right markers to the time frame of interest, give the clip a name, and click "Save Changes."
NOTE: You will need to remember which video you accessed to make clips because your saved clip will reside in the "Clips" section of that video.
NOTE: In order to embed the clip in a course or elsewhere, the clip will need to be labeled "public" or "institutional." "Private" clips cannot be shared.
To embed, or link to, an entire video (and not a clip you have created), you do not have to create or log into a personal account in AVOP. Instead, open AVOP, find the video of interest, open the video, and click on Embed/Link to get the link or embed code for future use.
Altmetrics is the use of alternative, or nontraditional, measurements to better understand the extent of a work's scholarly impact. Altmetrics serve as a complement to traditional metrics (e.g., citation counts) by incorporating statistics regarding usage, capture, and mentions of scholarly works in online environments. Contact your subject librarian to learn more.

The Fogler Library Interlibrary Loan Department works with other libraries and information providers to obtain research materials not held in Fogler Library, or that are unavailable for request through URSUS or MaineCat.
This link has instructions about how to bookmark the URSUS Libraries Proxy Bookmarklet in your web browser. When you are browsing the web through non-library resources and come across material behind a paywall, clicking on the Bookmarklet will reload the page through a University of Maine proxy server, allowing you full access to material Fogler Library subscribes to in most cases.
Fogler Library is a regional depository for U.S. Government publications. We are a selective depository for Canadian materials, and we have United Nations documents. For government documents assistance, you can email email@example.com.
