<div class="descr">The UHM Library invites you to a presentation on "Life-Long Learning Uses of Library Electronic Resources" on Wednesday, June 3, at 1:30 P.M. in Hamilton Library room 306.
Most of you are familiar with the majority of the Library's electronic resources. Peer-reviewed scholarly articles? Doctoral dissertations? Court decisions? Check, check, and check.
But one person's research can be another person's personal interest! What about when you need to make an informed decision for your personal life? A major purchase? Or when you need to find a good hiking spot? Or when you need to find the perfect wallpaper for your phone? Check, check, and check.
We've got you covered! With your UHM user ID, you have access to it all. Join us and learn about online resources you may not be aware of.
This will be the second in a series of presentations focused on various digital assets that the UHM Library collects and manages. It is sponsored by the UHM Library and presented by the UHM Digital Library Program Task Force.
Background: In the spring of 2014, a Digital Library Program (DLP) Task Force was formed at the UHM Library. The main goal of the Task Force is to build upon prior work in developing an organizational structure for a digital assets management strategy for the Library. One specific charge of the Task Force is to engage in outreach about the UHM digital assets to the Library's constituencies, especially as it applies to teaching and learning - and in this case personal and fun teaching and learning.

<i> Dr. Franois Gemenne</i>
Fulbright Scholar, Princeton University
FNRS Senior Research Associate, University of Lige /Sciences Po
Tuesday, June 9, 2015 10:30am - 12:00 noon
John A. Burns Hall, Room 3012 (3rd floor)</center>
Estimates and predictions of people displaced by environmental changes have been highly instrumental in the ever-increasing attention given to environmental migration in the media. Yet no consensual estimate exists, let alone a common agreed methodology. As a result, predictions and estimates have become one of the most contentious issues in the debates on environmental migration. This is partly the result of methods that don't talk to each other and fail to incorporate each other's insights. This talk will seek to assess what we know on the environment-migration, we don't know yet, and suggest a few avenues that could take the debate forward.
<i>Franois Gemenne</i> a Fulbright Scholar at Princeton University and FNRS Senior Research Associate, University of Lige /Sciences Po. A specialist of environmental geopolitics, he is also a FNRS senior research associate at the University of Lige (CEDEM) and at the University of Versailles (CEARC). He also lectures on environmental and migration policies in various universities, including Sciences Po (Paris and Grenoble), the University of Paris 13 and the Free University of Brussels. His research mostly deals with populations displaced by environmental changes, including natural disasters, and the policies of adaptation to climate change. He has conducted field studies in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, Tuvalu, China, Kyrgyzstan, the Maldives, Mauritius and Japan, after the Fukushima disaster.
He holds a joint doctorate in Political Science from Sciences Po Paris and the University of Liege (Belgium). He also holds a Master's in Development, Environment and Societies from the University of Louvain, as well as a Master of Research in Political Science from the London School of Economics. In 2010, he was awarded the ISDT-Wernaers Prize for achievement in the communication of science to the general public.
