As we cycle towards Berlin for the annual German Librarians Conference I will explore together with my fellow cyclists the role of green libraries for society. Although we have many topics to cover I’m especial interested in the New Professionals one.
Dierk’s homework: how to make a green library?
Libraries have always been the keeper of the cultural heritage of
mankind. But with the advent of the industrial era mankind threatens
the very foundation of our existence, nature. Now, libraries as keeper
of knowledge and educators of society can play a key role in saving
the environment and allow for technical advance at the same time. What
can, what has to be done by libraries and librarians to reach that
goal? Is there room for exchange of ideas regarding the green
libraries at cyclingforlibraries? Can this be the starting point of a
global green library movement?
I’m looking forward to this adventure
