University of Massachusetts Amherst Libraries is a great example of libraries as key players in sustainability on their campus. First of all they actually have a Sustainability Studies Librarian who teaches library research classes and consults with individuals – even local community members, and a great resource guide on the topic. With sustainability integrated widely throughout the campus (currently there are 74 courses related to sustainability!) the library decided to take the next step. Starting in 2012 the Libraries working with the campus’ Annual Giving Office created the “Second Ask” campaign with students making the calls and asking for donations for library, in particular for sustainability efforts. They have received gifts from more than 3,300 donors totaling $150,000 so far. This Sustainability Fund will be used for collection development, curriculum mapping, training for faculty, earth day speakers/events, mini grants for smaller ideas and opportunities – all related to sustainability.
