UMaine's Fogler Library purchases a broad range of materials to support research and teaching needs on campus. On this page, you will find a selection of works in Fogler Library (and beyond!) that emphasize the potential impacts of, and adaptations to, climate change among populations throughout the world. This interdisciplinary subject is growing in visibility, and is the subject of course work throughout the university.
This list of resources corresponds with a film series on the same topic. See the flyer below. This year's series is jointly sponsored by Fogler Library, the Climate Change Institute, the Department of Anthropology, Native American Programs, the Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions, and the School of Economics. Many thanks to Associate Professor Cindy Isenhour for her continued collaboration!
Eternal Amazon (access TBD)
Exploring the Amazon’s five million square kilometers, the film asks whether it is possible for humans to make sustainable use of the rainforest by featuring 9 successful projects for sustainable forest use that directly benefit the local population and foster good economic partnerships.
Reciprocity Project Short Films (streaming)
In the Reciprocity Project shorts, Indigenous storytellers and community partners created films in response to the question: What does 'reciprocity' mean to your community?
Catching the Sun (streaming)
Over the course of a solar jobs training program, this film follows the hope and heartbreak of unemployed American workers seeking jobs in the solar industry, speaking to one of the biggest questions of our time: Will the U.S. actually be able to build a clean energy economy?
