With permission from the librarians at Maine Maritime Academy’s Nutting Memorial Library, here’s a video explaining how to search the library catalog for a book and request it. Though the library is different, we use the same catalog so the same steps will work.

Flipster is a digital magazine service. Merrill Memorial Library now subscribes to a number of digital magazines in addition to our regular print magazines. Some of the digital titles we will carry are familiar, like the New Yorker, Sports Illustrated, Real Simple, and Vogue; other titles are new but cover subject matter similar to what you’ll find in our print collection, like Dwell, Food Network Magazine, Mother Jones, Newsweek, and Prevention.
You can read these magazines on your computer or smartphone, but the experience of reading on an iPad, Kindle Fire, or Android tablet is best.
