Spread the word-and the new web address: MARVEL is now the Digital Maine Library https://library.digitamaine.org
The Digital Maine Library provides every resident of Maine with access to online resources that include a collection of full text articles and abstracts from Maine
newspapers, journals and reference. It also provides students, business people, public library patrons, and higher education students and educators the learning tools.
