A Sustainability Librarian’s Manifesto: Your “Take Action” Checklist

Looking for a tool to help your institution with ideas and methods for promoting more environmentally sustainable environment? Madeleine Charney, librarian at University of Massachusetts Amherst,  created this Take Action Checklist. It has got an academic angle but could be applied for other types of libraries as well.   Use it  to reflect on your institution’s involvement in the sustainability movement and determine  else  you can do to bring the voice and resources of your library to the table. As Charney says librarians are “adept at gathering, synthesizing and disseminating information. We are born organizers!”   This document also includes resources for librarians to support this process such as through listserv, webinars,and  reading materials.
