eference librarians will research and respond via e-mail to requests that can be answered briefly and are of a legal, legislative, or governmental nature. We check for incoming requests throughout the day and generally respond within three working days. Maine requests are given priority. For requests coming from out-of-state we supply only Maine-related information. If you have a lengthy or involved request please consider calling the library at (207) 287-1600 or writing to us at: 43 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333-0043. We are open MON-FRI, 8:00-5:00 EST.
If your question is answerable with internet resources we will respond with the information or the appropriate internet link where it is located or scan several pages of information and email them as an attachment. Some questions can only be answered by photocopying or lending materials and sending them via mail, fax, or FedEx. In that case service and copy charges may apply, as well as various lending policies. Before we can send you photocopies we need your consent to be invoiced. Please check the permission box below.
Please help us to respond promptly and completely by supplying all the following:
