The Libraries provide resources through a combination of purchases, subscriptions, shared collections through the University of Maine System Libraries (URSUS), state-wide databases, MaineCat and interlibrary loan.
If the material you need is not available at the USM Libraries or online, the Libraries can usually obtain it for you. Books should be ordered through URSUS or MaineCat if available; for journal articles and for books unavailable through URSUS or MaineCat, use Interlibrary Loan.
