Textbooks on Reserves -

We have scanned chapters for a variety of textbooks and electronic textbooks available. Students, you can search for course reserves on Ares. If you do not see the materials you need on Ares, please emailusm.reserves@maine.edu and provide the course name, number, instructor, and the book chapters/pages you need.

 We urge Faculty to request textbooks and required readings be placed on e-reserves. The Library will scan materials within the parameters of Copyright Fair Use for your reserves. You can also share your syllabus with the library. Contact usm.reserves@maine.edu

Please note: Due to current quarantine guidelines for print materials, we are not offering physical check out of the textbooks at this time.
