Interested in getting certification yourself? or pass this along to your patrons! Check out the Professional Certificate in Sustainability Leadership Online Certificate. It’s designed for practitioners who want to improve their skills and knowledge of “best practices” in order to lead effective sustainability initiatives in their university, corporation, community, or municipality. This online professional certificate program combines the strengths of Ithaca College’s School of Business, Roy H. Park School of Communications, Department of Environmental Studies and Science, and their campus Sustainability Initiatives (awarded the 2008 Campus Leadership Award by the AASHE – Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education)
Environmentalsciencedegrees.net just published a nice collection of resources on LEED certification called 50 Online Resources for LEED certification. They include categories with links to sites that offer LEED Information and green building news and info on how to meet the standards, LEED education training and exam prep help,list of LEED experts, links to LEED materials and design guides, and LEED and green building forums. You can also check out the list on the right for more lists of resources relating to environmental topics or find a degree program through their search.
This website resource is not only good to pass along to your library patrons but useful if you are thinking about library green rebuild or getting LEED certification as a librarian. (Btw, I know several LEED AP certified librarians who rock: Anne Less, Ameet Doshi and Rebekkah Smith Aldrich to name a few; if you want to know more about this idea, I’m sure they would be happy to be contacted 🙂
