1. ANNOUNCEMENTS
A. FILM SERIES: THE LAST DAYS OF SHISHMAREF
Please join us in the CETA Room of Fogler Library on Tuesday, March 18th, at 6 p.m., for a showing of "The Last Days of Shishmaref." This will be the first film in a 3-part series titled "The Human Dimensions of Climate Change." "The Last Days of Shishmaref" documents the effects of global warming on an Inupiaq community on Sarichef Island in northwestern Alaska. Through the lives of three families, the film depicts the impending end of the traditional lifestyle on the island, as their native land is threatened by the rising sea. Discussion following the film will be facilitated by Dr. Darren Ranco, chair of Native American Programs.

B. PRESENTATION ON OPEN ACCESS REPOSITORIES
