Plunkett Maine Writers Collection
Established in October 1999, the Terry Plunkett Collection consists of books and videos by and about Maine authors. The primary focus of the Plunkett Collection is contemporary Maine fiction and poetry. It honors Terry Plunkett’s accomplishments as teacher, poet, scholar, novelist, editor, and mentor.
Terry was a Professor of English at The University of Maine at Augusta from 1969-1998. Additional services to the University included editing “The Kennebec: A Portfolio of Maine Writing” and serving as Acting Dean of Academic Affairs from 1980-1981. He was named Professor Emeritus of English in 1998. He passed away in 1998, leaving behind many caring friends and family.
With the exception of a few rare items and videos, the Plunkett Collection is included within the general Katz Library collection and is available for checkout by UMA students, faculty, staff, and community. The materials in the Plunkett Collection may be searched using the library’s online catalog, URSUS. Donations to this collection are greatly appreciated.

UMA Seed Library
Established in 2018, the UMA Seed Library is a collection of vegetable seeds made available to the community. In collaboration with the UMA-Augusta Community Garden Club and UMA-Bangor community garden, the Seed Library was initially stocked with organic seeds from FedCo Seeds in Clinton, Maine. Seeds are available at both the Bangor and Augusta campuses.
The Seed Library is a “seed share,” which means that library patrons are allowed to borrow seeds to start their own gardens. Through this seed share effort, UMA and the UMA Libraries are supporting sustainability. As part of our sustainability mission, we ask that when borrowers are able to, they bring back part of their harvest to share with the campus, or they harvest seeds to be returned to the seed library.
