I am posting this on behalf of the IFLA Library and Building Equipment Committee:
I am preparing a paper for the BOBCATSSS Conference 29th-31th January 2014 in
Barcelona, Spain, I kindly ask you to help with some informations from
your country. The paper’s title is:
“Green Libraries Coming Up! National and international initiatives
fostering environmental sustainable libraries and library services”
My questions are:
- Are there any national Green Library initiatives in your country, e.g.
by the national library association: a working group, round table, Green
Libary policies etc.?
- Are there any regional/local Green Library initiatives, e.g. public or
academic libraries going green? Regional/local Green Library networks?
- Are there any institutions fostering the Green Library movement – e.g.
library schools teaching “The Green Library”, library conferences going
- Are there any Green Library’s websites, journals, networks?
- Are there any other Green Library initatives?
I ask you kindly to answer this email not later than 30 November, 2013.
Furthermore I ask you kindly to spread this email to library associations
and to email lists in your country.
Thank you very much in advance!
