Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Sustainability initiatives and efforts help move libraries toward a more equitable, healthy, and economically viable society. This session assembles practitioners doing sustainability work in a range of settings, including the implementation of a regional certification program, an institutional transition to renewable energy sources, a university system-wide sustainable OER initiative, and a classroom approach to teaching information literacy from a civic engagement perspective. Panelists will explore how their sustainability efforts are changing the way libraries operate and provide services, creating new opportunities for growth and partnerships, and meeting the needs of their communities. This session is sponsored by ALA’s Sustainability Round Table.
