In response to faculty and student feedback, we plan to make changes to the search box on the Library’s web site simultaneous with the launch of new CBBcat. The Catalogs search tab will become the first tab listed with options to search CBBCat (default), NExpress or MaineCat. OneSearch will move to the second tab position.

As part of the campus sesquicentennial commemoration of the Civil War, the George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives presented a blog as a daily reminder of what occurred 150 years ago. The posts derive from among the historical resources in Special Collections: a passage from a letter to a soldier; a soldier’s diary entry; a note of condolence; a daily surgeon’s morning report; an account of activities on the home front.
The year-long project has concluded but you can still view all of the posts.
For more information, please visit the Special Collections & Archives site.
