Maine's Digital Library

Maine’s Digital Library (aka MARVEL!) offers thousands of magazines, newspapers, and reference books available anywhere in the State of Maine to all Maine citizens through this expansive online resource!

All content in the digital library is made available through extensive public funding administered by the Maine State Library and significant funding from the University of Maine. Additional funding partners include Colby College, Bates College and Bowdoin College.

Technical support, service, and access to Maine’s Digital Library is fully supported by Maine InfoNet.

We have more exciting changes in the works, so stay tuned!
