TOMTOM GPS units.

The UMC Library purchased two TOMTOM XXL GPS units. These were Black Friday specials. They come with lifetime maps. We have downloaded the current maps and have done the basic set up.

We have set the checkout period for four days. Vision was that these would be used for trips to Grand Forks, Fargo, and the Twin Cities but would also be useful to those unfamiliar with Crookston street addresses.

These units can be checked out at the Circulation/Reserve Desk at the entry to the Library.

Animal Conferences S-PAC online

S-PAC (Searchable Proceedings of Animal Conferences) is an electronic database of proceedings from major animal production conferences held in the U.S. and Canada. Access is now by IP address so a user name and password is no longer required. The links in the UMC Library Database page now go directly to the S-PAC search page.
