Welcome to the Bates College Digital Library. This site offers online access to a variety of digital collections produced and maintained by the Edmund S. Muskie Archives and Special Collections Library, Bates College. These digital collections represent a small sampling of the rich historical material held by the Archives. This site uses Greenstone http://www.greenstone.org/, an open source software for building digital libraries, and is intended to both facilitate and encourage research within these and the broader archival collections held by Bates.
Digital copies are provided within the Digital Library for research purposes only. For all other uses, including publication, reproduction and quotation beyond fair use, permission must be obtained in writing from: The Edmund S. Muskie Archives and Special Collections Library, Bates College, 70 Campus Avenue, Lewiston, Maine 04240-6018.
This site is new, and we welcome your feedback. If there is something that you would like to see online that isn’t already here or if you have other comments, questions, and concerns, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
