DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: 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? The whats, whys and wherefores of sustainability? What is happening on our campuses and in our communities regarding sustainability? How can we support what is happening and how can we contribute to moving the needle?
