Accessing Digital Maine Library

The Digital Maine Library offers Maine residents access to a wide variety of subscription content including : newspapers, magazines, journal articles, genealogy tools and learning resources for all ages. Because the subscription content is licensed only for users within Maine or Maine library patrons, you will likely need to provide information proving you are authorized to access the system.

Geoauthentication - the easiest way to access content

If you are visiting the Digital Maine Library from a computer located in Maine, you may be able to easily access content by simply geoauthenticating into the system. If geoauthentication is an option for you, you will see a message in your browser asking you if you want to share your location. Click the blue "Use My Location" button to allow the system to verify that your location is within Maine. For more information about geoauthentication or privacy protections for users, click here.

Using your Library Card - if you unable to or don't want to geoauthenticate

If geoauthentication is not provided as an option, you can also access Digital Maine Library subscription content using a library card from a participating Maine library, including libraries in the MILS, Minerva or URSUS systems. Patrons of Portland Public Library are also eligible to use the system. When you reach subscription content in the system, you may be asked to provide your last name and barcode number from your library card.
