Sustainability and Libraries: Selected Bibliography

Bibliography on Sustainability in Libraries

This collection includes monograph titles to help libraries learn more about the history and basic concepts of sustainability, applying sustainability principles in their libraries, and the crucial role that libraries can play in helping their communities learn the principles of sustainability and prepare for the effects of climate change. This collection emphasizes resources specific to the library community, and provides information on curriculum development, collections, exhibits, events, advocacy, communication, and library buildings and space design.

For a more exhaustive list of books, articles, presentations, websites, blogs, projects and more that fall under the umbrella of sustainable libraries, see the ALA Sustainability Round Table (SustainRT) Zotero library.
