Course Readings and Materials
Course Description: The goal of this course is to raise the environmental consciousness of participants and to promote the idea that it is feasible to incorporate greening practices into our libraries by rethinking our processes, reducing and recycling waste, and reusing or purchasing recycled materials.
The intended outcome is to provide librarians with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to incorporate greening practices into the workplace. Course instructors will present two case studies: a successful library recycling program and green conference planning.
Participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences and develop a plan of action for implementing the six R's: rethinking, reducing, recycling, reusing, repurchasing, rejoicing.
