1. ANNOUNCEMENTS
A. HUMAN DIMENSIONS OF CLIMATE CHANGE EXHIBIT
Visit us in the Fogler Library to view the Human Dimensions of Climate Change exhibit, which highlights a selection of Fogler's books, government documents, and films that emphasize the potential impacts of climate change on populations throughout the world. An online analogue of the exhibit can be found at <http://www.library.umaine.edu/displays/HumansClimate.htm>. This exhibit, located in the first floor hallway, corresponds with a film series of the same name, taking place at the library during late March and early April (more information on the film series can be found in part 1B, below).

B. FILM SERIES: THE HUMAN DIMENSIONS OF CLIMATE CHANGE
Please join us in the CETA Room of Fogler Library on Tuesday, March 25th, at 6 p.m., for a showing of "Climate Refugees." This will be the second film in the 3-part series, "The Human Dimensions of Climate Change." "Climate Refugees" looks at the recent phenomenon of persons displaced by climatically induced environmental disasters and its sociopolitical implications. The film features a variety of leading scientists, relief workers, security consultants, and major political figures, including John Kerry and Newt Gingrich. Discussion following the film will be facilitated by Dr. Paul Mayewski, Director of the Climate Change Institute.

C. TAX FORMS
Federal and Maine income tax forms and instructions are available from the Fogler Library home page <http://www.library.umaine.edu/>. Use the links located in the lower center section.
