In addition to the typical resources found on a college campus, our two libraries — the Ketchum Library on the Biddeford Campus and the Abplanalp Library on the Portland Campus — offer more than 135,000 print volumes, more than 375,000 e-books and 80,000 full text journals. As a student researcher, you may have the opportunity to display your work in the highly-visible exhibit space just inside the Ketchum Library’s main entrance.
Maine Women Writers Collection
As a student in the History program, you also enjoy the opportunity to explore our Maine Women Writers Collection, which is housed in the Abplanalp Library. This one-of-a-kind collection provides a unique perspective into the literary, cultural, and social history of Maine and New England women.
The Bush Legacy Collection
Our George and Barbara Bush Center presents another treasure trove of rare historic documents and artifacts. The Bush Legacy Collection houses materials related to the life of George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, focusing on his family’s New England heritage.
The Randall J. Cushing Collection
The Bush Center also houses other collections of historic significance, like The Randall J. Cushing Collection of World War I and World War II Letters, which is a compilation of correspondences sent home from various soldiers to their loved ones between 1914 and 1963.
