Charney publishes on shifting paradigms of academic librarians

Wonderful read by Madeleine Charney who just published her research study in the Collaborative Librarianship ejournal called “Academic Librarians and the Sustainability Curriculum:Building Alliances to Support a Paradigm Shift”  This article discusses her survey of sustainability LibGuides and follow up interviews with some of these librarians. She finds a wide range of professional work in sustainability by librarians but also the need for librarians to collaborate and learn from others in areas beyond libraries.  Also noted is that library administration needs to realize the importance of having a librarian with sustainability responsibilities.  Don’t miss the list of best practices found at the end of the article. One  of the outcomes of this study was the creation of an ALA roundtable focused on sustainability called  SustainRT!
