Green Library Article in Online Magazine

In Online magazine‘s (by Information Today) March/April 2010 (vo 34, no 2)  publication, there is an article titled “Libraries Taking the LEED: Green Libraries Leading in Energy and Environmental Design” written by Frederick Stoss – a leader in the green libraries area.  The article discusses a little of the history of libraries being environmentally responsible, explains LEED certification, gives some examples of sustainable library resources/databases (including EBSCO’s GreenFILE and Gale’s GREENR), contains a nice green libraries glossary, and offers some programming ideas and professional resources.  There are several great blogs, wikis, and websites listed (though my blog wasnt one of them) most of which I have blogged about in the past  – such as the Alliance Library System’s Going Green Blog, Monika Antonelli’s GreenLibraries directory, and  Maria Jankowska’s Electronic Green Journal just to name a few.  This article is worth a read so check it out and pass it on!
