Digital Maine Library

Digital Maine Library offers Maine residents a collection of full text articles from magazines, newspapers, and reference books that are credible, reputable resources. Because the information originates as a print source, it counts as a print source rather than an internet source for your project! One of the drop down features allows you to sort by audience (such as elementery, middle school, and teen & high school) for resources that are best for your project.
