Sustainability is not just about fuel efficient cars, composting and ethically sourced food. The concept is also readily applicable to library instruction programs, many of which are on unsustainable paths. Incorporating more online instruction holds great promise, but does not have to mean expensive tutorial creation software and web conferencing suites, expansive embedded librarian initiatives, or burnt out teaching librarians at mid-semester. This webcast will provide practical tips and resources for creative, cost-effective and sustainable online library instruction using the cycle of reduce, reuse, and recycle.
