Success in college is closely tied to having and using effective learning and study skills. The Learning Support and Counseling Services Department provides a variety of resources designed to help students develop and strengthen their learning skills, and become more effective, self-confident and independent learners. Assistance with time management, study skills, memory techniques, test taking and more is offered face-to-face, by phone and on-line.  Learning Support also provides tutoring in most developmental and introductory level courses, and coordinates accommodations and services to students with disabilities. Students should contact the department or their local student services coordinator to learn more about available resources or visit the department website.


The libraries of UMA (Katz Library in Augusta, UMA Bangor Library, and Off-Campus Library Services) provide library resources for students, staff, faculty, and local community residents at all UMA delivery locations. Classes, individual and group consultations about library resources are available at all campuses and over interactive television, by e-mail, phone, and internet chat. Books and other materials are accessible via the UMS online book catalog, URSUS, magazine and journal articles, many of them in full-text, as available through online subscription databases.  Access to these resources is available both on and off-campus using a library barcode number,; access to books and articles not found in the catalog or databases can be requested and delivered to users at no charge.  In the Katz and UMA Bangor libraries, there are internet-ready computers and laptops with internet access and document and presentation software.  In addition, the libraries provide multimedia services, study areas, printers, scanners, and photocopy machines.  The UMA Libraries serve the regions in which they are located:  Augusta or 621-3349; Bangor or 262-7900; and, Off-Campus Library Services at 1-800-339-7323 (in-state) and 1-888-266-4950 (nationwide) or University College Centers and sites.   


A limited number of lockers are available on the Augusta campus (Richard J. Randall Student Center) for use by registered students on a first-come, first-served basis.  Students must supply their own locks and the University assumes no liability for items stored in the lockers.  All lockers must be emptied out by 5 p.m. on the last day of the semester, after which the University will remove the lock and transfer the contents of the locker to the Lost and Found.  The Lost and Found is located at the Enrollment Services Center in the Randall Student Center.  Contact: Office of Student Activities/Student Life in Augusta.
