Current Print Books of Interest

You can search for eBooks the same way as print books, using URSUS. You're able to access those indicated as being available either to USM or the UMaine System (UM).

There are also lots of eBooks in our databases, which you can search for in OneSearch, the databases themselves, or by using the Journals & eBooks search in the gray/blue box on the library website.

Citing all sources you consulted in your research is essential. APA (American Psychological Association) is the most commonly used citation style for Tourism and Hospitality. The APA Stylebook is available as an eBook and in print at each USM Libraries location.
