The Libraries Green Team Meets Its First Certification Goal
Posted by treynold on February 25, 2011
The IUB Libraries, of which the Business/SPEA Information Commons is a part, has been granted “Seed” certification status by the University’s Office of Sustainability. To reach this goal, actions have been taken in education, resource use, recycling, sustainable computing, energy, transportation, and food categories. Here at Business/SPEA, conveniently placed containers make it easy to recycle paper, aluminum, and plastics #1-7. Guests are encouraged to think twice before printing, and then to print double-sided copies whenever appropriate. Our new group study rooms save energy with motion detectors linked to lighting and temperature control. The Libraries Green Team is proud to be one of the first on campus to achieve the “Seed” certification status, and is making plans to meet the next goal in the series.
