URSUS : Use the URSUS catalog to find physical books and online books in the Libraries, the University of Maine System, and beyond.

If you don't find what you need using the URSUS Library Catalog, try MaineCat and/or WorldCat, which are on the left side of the results page.


MaineCat : contains books from all over Maine.

WorldCat : If no library in Maine owns the book, try searching the worldwide library catalog: WorldCat.

Items found in WorldCat may be requested with Interlibrary Loan. This provides access to millions of items outside the state of Maine. Please plan ahead - shipments for items outside of Maine can be a week or more, depending on the location of the lending library.
