Sustainability in Academic Librarianship: Addressing Global Concerns

Your Name and Title: Raymond Pun, Doctoral Student

School or Organization Name: California State University

Area of the World from Which You Will Present: California, United States

Language in Which You Will Present: English

Target Audience(s): Librarians, educators and sustainability advocates

Short Session Description (one line): This session covers the role of academic librarians in supporting sustainability and sustainable development goals. 

Full Session Description (as long as you would like): With the immediate rise of climate change, waste, deforestation, air pollution and more around the world, how can libraries address these concerns and inform their communities on these imminent challenges? This session will explore how academic libraries and librarians have supported the United Nations' sustainable development goals (SDGs), particularly in response to environmental and economic challenges. From bike loaning programs to seed libraries to information literacy on ecology and environmental sciences to a new reduction in printing, libraries can play a critical role in foster sustainability holistically to address these global concerns. All educators and advocates will find this session helpful in incorporate global sustainability practices in their own curriculum, or in collaboration with their libraries.
