The ALA Task Force On the Environment presents the third webinar in a four-part series.
In this third webinar, participants will discuss and share opportunities for engagement in professional library organizations and other groups which might provide a forum to share sustainability best practices such as discussion groups, task forces, committees and social activities. Share your experiences with tools such as LinkedIn and listservs, organizations such as AASHE, ARL, ACRL, as well as state and regional associations. How can we initiate contact with such groups? Where shall we focus? How do we address the diverse needs of libraries in all sectors: public, academic, school, special and other? Come prepared to discuss and offer ideas for specific recommendations for successful sustainability activities within professional library organizations.
There will be the option for a group to convene in another virtual room for an ALA-focused discussion — in particular, the future of Task Force on the Environment (TFOE). Plans are already underway for a face-to-face social gathering at the upcoming ALA Annual conference to consider how to best advance the sustainability message within our libraries and associations.
Webinar series facilitators: Madeleine Charney (UMass Amherst Libraries), Beth Filar Williams (UNC Greenboro), and Bonnie Smith (University of Florida Libraries).
