Sustainable Librarians Group on LinkedIn

In May, at the annual conference in Calgary of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries, the Courthouse and Law Society Libraries group (of which I was co-chair until a few weeks ago) organized a session on "Going Green at your Law Library: Learning from Calgary Public Library's Eco Action Team".

So the following item from the blog Going Green @ Your Library attracted my attention: New Sustainable Librarians Group on LinkedIn :
During our research to write this book chapter Librarians as Sustainability Advocates, Educators and Entrepreneurs (part of The Entrepreneurial Librarian book to be published by McFarland & Company in late 2011 or early 2012, editors Mary Krautter, Mary Beth Lock and Mary Scanlon), we were looking for inspiring, entrepreneurial stories about green initiatives by librarians to include. We collected some fantastic stories and heard from some wonderful people, many of whom mentioned a need to better network connect with others. So we created a network on LinkedIn called Sustainability Librarians. where we hope people share stories and best practices, network and encourage others to join the movement.
