Trinity College Library supports Green Week. Go Green 2015!

Trinity College Library is delighted to support College’s Green Week 2015, 16-20 February. frog on a rock

In the Berkeley Library foyer, our Early Printed Books department is providing a display of printed material on the history of forestry in Ireland.

Collection Management / Periodicals have selected material which can be seen in the Orientation Space display case (BLU), ‘Making Waves for Water!’

We’ve put together a selection of books to illustrate how water sustainability affects us on the personal, national and global scale. Why not think of how water sustainability affects you and what the idea of sustainable living could encourage changes in our way of life?

Our display is designed to coincide with both College Green Week and the College Strategic Plan, which supports a policy of sustainable resource use on Campus. We encourage our library patrons to go Green for Green Week and to explore the theme of sustainability using the Library Catalogue, where they will find a wealth of resources on the topic.

Recently published, scholarly material, from our Environmental Science collections is represented in a special display in the Hamilton Library. A short video promoting that material will run on our information screens in the Library buildings during the week. Each day during Green Week, our blog will feature individual books from the selected items.

Green Week will be launched at 1.15 pm, today, Monday, 16th February, at the Exam Hall, Front Square. There will be a display of the latest technology in electric vehicles. A founder of FoodCloud, a community-based social enterprise matching those with too much food with those who have too little, will speak about ‘Green Entrepreneurship’.

All welcome.
