Of Scans and Bags and Greener Things

Energy efficiency at the Library & Warwick Carbon Management Implementation Plan
Joel Cardinal - University of Warwick Energy Manager at the University of Warwick
Green initiatives are rarely achieved by libraries alone and sometimes a 'whole institution' approach can yield results. Joel will discuss the issues of energy efficiency and carbon management, which, given the government targets, is of current concern to all Universities and libraries.
With six different speakers from a range of institutions, the day provides an excellent opportunity to engage in the green agenda, to find out about projects and initiatives at other institutions and to network with colleagues who have an interest in green matters.
Although the focus of the day is predominantly HE based, we welcome delegates from all areas of the Library and Information sector.
Cost: £80 including lunch and refreshments.
