|Title: ||Greening of Drexel Libraries: Supporting Drexel Green Initiative|
|Authors: ||Bhatt, Jay|
|Issue Date: ||20-Nov-2009|
|Abstract: ||Drexel Libraries has begun efforts to make our libraries more environmentally-friendly. In addition to improving workflow based on greening techniques such as energy conservation and paperless offices, we are starting a physical archive of vegetable and flower seeds, auditing all departments within the libraries for ways to go green, and following waste disposal and recycling efforts.
In addition to the physical efforts taking place in the libraries, the Libraries Greening committee is also spreading the word about our efforts and the efforts of Drexel Green, both to the campus and the world at large through the use of a "Greening" blog to track our progress, broadcast local environmental news and events, and provide regular tips for greener living. As a result, our patrons and staff are becoming more environmentally-conscious.
At Drexel, students are encouraged to work on projects related to Drexel Green Initiative through Freshman Design, Senior Design or assignments through various courses. Through library instruction, virtual consultations from the Library’s web site, and by developing collections in related areas, Drexel libraries aim to impart crucial information skills that students need to successfully complete these projects and assignments. This poster highlights some of these initiatives and in the process help support the University’s overall mission of "Drexel Green."|
