How Green Is My Library?

Not all important library technologies are information technologies. Appalachian State University News today highlighted its “Carol Grotnes Belk Library and Information Commons” which has recently been recognized by both Library Journal and American Libraries for excellence in green design.

“The green features of Belk Library include an emphasis on natural lighting as well as advanced mechanical equipment for energy savings, cork flooring, energy-efficient elevator system, electronic sensor faucets and toilets, computer-controlled shades and recycled/recyclable carpeting.”
