Greening of the library

Via SCSU: Join us Wednesday, May 14, 2008 , 1:00 p.m, to discuss and share ideas about green libraries and campuses.

Conveners:

Mary Carr, Dean Instructional Services, Spokane Community College

Dr. Debra Rowe, President of the US Partnership for a Sustainable Future

From a library/librarians’ perspective, how are our library resources when it comes to sustainability? Are we supporting the college’s curricular efforts? What about the “greening” of the library and the campus? Can we practice sustainability? Can we promote it by speakers, presentations, etc.? What can we do within our library associations, and other professional groups?
