Resource Guide for Green Librarians!

Check out this great resource guide  by Laura Barnes  of Prairie Research Institute, Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (University of Illinois Library)

I love the guide’s opening Introduction box that contains handouts from green library workshops with slides and resources.  It  includes RSS feeds from the Environmental News Bits Libraries category and  a list of new green library resources (from her “delicious” bookmarks tagged for green libraries) which you can subscribe to the RSS feed.

Other tabs include a Sustainability Overview, with book and website recommendations in general and for sustainable libraries; a Green Building/facility tab with sections on energy, green cleaning and water efficiency; a Purchasing tab, with info on greenwashing, product guides, electronic disposal, and paper use/recycling; a collection development tab on green weeding information and collection development collection resource links; and lastly a Programming tab with book lists, curriculum resources, and art/craft projects.

Thanks Laura, a great resource so many libraries can now use!
