Sustainability is often a campus-wide initiative, but how are academic librarians responding to the challenge to go green within their own walls? We've asked top academic librarians what eco-friendly tactics and green strategies have been most successful for them at their college and university libraries. This session will focus on illustrative examples and best practices in green academic libraries around the country.
