Green Libraries Resource

This webpage project has been worked on by various grad students/classes in library management classes at UNC. Contains a directory of green libraries (Side note: must  check out the directory Green Libraries by Monika Antonelli)  but a fun aspect is that this one has a map  (i love maps!) as well as an organized listing of some green libraries. The other cool feature is it aggregates several blogs (this one included!) into one page, for a quick scan of the top green library ideas, news item, or happenings.
