Reducing Environmental Impacts of Collections Care and Management
September 14, 2021
1:00PM - 2:30PM ET
People who protect and care for collections are often concerned about the negative impacts of their work on the environment and climate. Fortunately there are resources and practices that augment what you likely already do to limit waste and save money. And there is social science research to guide us in understanding how to adapt behaviors while remaining positive. We’ll explore a variety of approaches that you can take as an individual to ‘green’ your work, AND we’ll consider steps to take to encourage your institution and your peers to join you in making these shifts. You will learn to know when a green practice is good to try now or better to try later. You’ll leave having created a personalized list of options, tools, and tricks to help you start incorporating approaches on your own.
