1. ANNOUNCEMENTS
A. FILM SERIES: THE HUMAN DIMENSIONS OF CLIMATE CHANGE
Please join us in the CETA Room of Fogler Library on Tuesday, April 1st, at 6 p.m., for a screening of "There Once Was an Island: Te Henua e Nnoho." This will be the third and final film in the 3-part series, "The Human Dimensions of Climate Change." "There Once Was an Island: Te Henua e Nnoho" provides a window into the lives of three members of the Polynesian community of Takuu who are facing a devastating environmental crisis. Through the lens of both community members and researchers, this film examines the impact of climate change on communities with little access to resources or support. Discussion following the film will be facilitated by Dr. Jim Roscoe, Professor of Anthropology.

B. 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.

2. COLLECTIONS
A. FACULTY SENATE PASSES MOTION ON LIBRARY'S JSTOR CONTENT
On February 26, the University of Maine Faculty Senate passed a motion from the Faculty Senate Library Advisory Committee that allows the library to discard its print copies of journals that JSTOR has digitized and archived. Fogler Library has purchased the online JSTOR journals, which are available through links in URSUS <http://ursus.maine.edu/>, Ejournals@UMaine <http://library.umaine.edu/ejournals/>, and Indexes and Databases <http://www.library.umaine.edu/indexesdb/Indexes.asp>. Library staff will be working on this project during the next year. Please contact Deb Rollins, Head of Collection Services, at <drollins@maine.edu> or 581-1659, for more information.
