The third seminar for the ICS seminar season will be given by Steve Hardin, associate librarian.
The title is “Don’t stop with Google: Finding sustainability information.” Steve is the library’s liaison for the Communication, Earth and Environmental Systems, Math and Computer Science and the Political Science departments and is therefore well equipped to assist with library research on almost any topic that has to do with sustainable development.

Creating a partnership between traditional cultures and scientific innovation is possible and beneficial to the planet, says an environmental biologist who will speak at Indiana State University in observance of Earth Day.
Robin Kimmerer, professor of environmental biology at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, is the founding director of the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment, which aims to create programs drawing on the wisdom of both indigenous populations and scientific knowledge for shared goals of sustainability.
“Many of the questions of sustainability that we face involve the intersection between human culture and values and the natural world,” she added. “So relying on a single knowledge system, which excludes human values, is inadequate to address the challenges we face. Traditional knowledge is more holistic and includes values, ethics and responsibilities … so makes a good partner to balance scientific ways of knowing.”
